I usually don't like movies about all the horrible things in Africa but this movie is so much more-about a young girl dealing with what life has given her. Amazing.


This movie a beautiful. It does an amazing job of showing the innocent view of children, even as they walk through the darkest parts of war, the beauty of love, the redemption of family found.

Best movie I've seen in a long time

Rebelle (War Witch) was definitely worth renting. The cinematography alone was mind blowing and artistically crafted without getting in the way of the plot. The drama and livelihood we are offered through this narrative peace is unforgettable. Truly as haunting as the ghosts on screen. Highly recommended.
