Baye Laye is the captain of a fishing pirogue. Like many of his Senegalese compatriots, he sometimes dreams of new horizons, where he can earn a better living for his family. When he is offered to lead one of the many pirogues that head towards Europe via the Canary Island, he reluctantly accepts the job, knowing full-well the dangers that lie ahead. Leading a group of 30 men who don't all speak the same language, some of whom have never seen the sea, Baye Laye will confront many perils in order to reach the distant coasts of Europe.

Review For The Pirogue

It's as sadly repetitive a story for Europe as it is for the US: would-be immigrants risking all for a better opportunity elsewhere.
Farran Smith Nehme-New York Post

Every moment feels human and true, from the naive optimism of the trip's sendoff to its unsparingly realistic conclusion, which trades reckless hope for quiet honor.
Elizabeth Weitzman-New York Daily News

Given the film's neo-neorealist imperative, the real achievement here is affecting detail within an observational approach.
Andrew Schenker-Village Voice

[It] touches, subtly, on issues of faith, feminism and a faltering world economy.
Stephen Whitty-Newark Star-Ledger

A remarkably cleareyed, quietly ambitious film ...
A.O. Scott-New York Times

What distinguishes it is not the depiction of danger and loss at sea, but a deep understanding of West African culture. Unlike such glib Hollywood issue pictures as Blood Diamond, The Pirogue is rich with authentic details.
Mark Jenkins-NPR

Director Moussa Touré's allegorical underpinning transforms this rather predictable plot, ripped from familiar headlines around the world, into a decidedly Senegalese story.
Maria Garcia-Film Journal International

A key to the realism is tribal and linguistic diversity so often ignored in films about Africans. . memorably captures the staggering determination it takes to go to Europe.
Nora Lee

There's enough filmmaking talent evident throughout that you wish the journey were more satisfying overall.
Keith Uhlich-Time Out New York

Moussa Touré's worldview, like Ousmane Sembene's, is characterized by the feeling that, at the end of the day, some degree of loss or defeat is inevitable.
Calum Marsh-Slant Magazine

Politically powerful neorealist treatment on Senegalese "boat people" done with a poet's touch.
