"Spiritual, soulful and captivating" —The Hollywood Reporter
"Williams is a solid presence anchoring the movie with great ease." —Variety
"A metaphysical film of rare sensorial power (...) a beautiful fable of initiation." —Le Monde
At the same time, joyous, subtle, and tragic, Tey is a powerful fairytale. In a village outside Dakar, the gods—or the stars, or destiny, have spoken: Satché must die by the end of the day. Until nightfall, the film follows him making his goodbyes to those around him—his family, his lover, his children, his wife. Initially feted by his community with an enthusiasm tainted by melancholy, Satché, the one chosen to disappear, soon finds himself set apart from those closest to him, in beautiful scenes that seek to show those elements of friendship, desire, sadness, affection, and anger that are usually left unsaid. —BelleMoon Productions
