Love the cinematography and the colours, the actors are pretty good, and it’s an intriguing story line. But there’s something awkward about the way it’s been edited.
Still, a really pleasant surprise.
But, man, those Angolan villains were eeevil. And I didn’t understand why the commander didn’t just shoot them when she met them. I mean, she’s in the military? She must have access to lots of weapons? And subordinates? And why is she such a bad shot? So the plot was a head-scratcher.
Viva Riva. Djo Munga. 2010. The Democratic Republic of the Congo.
- 1 ripe papaya
- 10cl milk
- 20cl dark rum
- 2 tbsp sugar
Run all ingredients in a blender with ice cubes. Pour into cocktail glass and garnish with strawberries.
This was excellent, but I guess it depends on the quality of papaya you find. It’s much more subtle in flavour than the South American batida recipes.
