Description: Titled for a bus that follows the route from Sakar, Senegal to Conakry, Guinea, TVG is a comedy that mixes laughter with social and political commentary. Despite warnings that an armed rebellion is expected along the Guinea border, bus owner and driver Rambo (Makena Diop) and his assistant Demba (Al Hamdou Traore) head out for their usual run, picking up an odd assortment of passengers along the way, including a pair of French tourists heading home from a disastrous canoe trip and a deposed government minister one step ahead of the rebels. The film's political humor is for the most part good-natured, and TVG offers a healthy share of beautiful African scenery for good measure.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
