The narrative parsimony of Munyurangabo is such that revealing the plot, even in a synopsis, would spoil the pleasures of the slow, patient unfolding of events. They’re not “spoilers” per se, but each tiny revelation of the backstory – people’s relationships to each other, or the purpose of their trip, for instance — forces the audience to recalibrate its understanding of previous events or lines of dialogue. I’ll at least say a little less than what one can read from your newspaper’s synopsis: after stealing a machete – perhaps the most recognizable symbol of the Rwandan genocide – two boys, Munyurangabo and Sangwa, set off on a journey.
