  • As a film stupefied by its exotic setting, Oka! almost drops its walking stick of a plot as it wanders through the Central African Republic's jungle, getting blissed out on the sensuous delights of the surrounding wildlife and local Bayaka music. show more

  • Yearning for an exciting African adventure? Oka! isn't it. show more

  • The plot is somewhat pedestrian and the dialogue needs more zip. But it's amusing to watch the Bayaka poke good-natured fun at the gangly Larry, who has only their best interests at heart. show more
