This wicked tale, told with wit and irony has the ingredients of a crowed-pleaser. VILLAGE VOICE
Hyenas is the most exhilarating mix of exotica, comedy and tragedy since 1959’s Black Orpheus.
NEW YORK POST, Larry Worth
In Hyenas, Djibril Diop Mambety’s pungent adaptation of the „Visit“, the setting has been moved from Europe to Africa. Although the film, keeps the outlines of the Dürrenmatt play intact, the change of locale lends the tale a new political dimension.
