Viva Riva is about gang war! It stems from a fuel shortage in DR Congo and lo and behold, it never runs out of gas. Djo Munga captures the vibe of the gratuitous torturing violence and sweaty, ass-oriented sex scenes and the expertly energized genre with a mixture of carpe diem and self-destructive instinct.
Viva Riva does inject a much-needed dose of excitement and unpredictability into African Cinema.
Many more elements combine to give Viva Riva a tone that is a cynic’s dispassionate amusement rather than a self-righteous moral outrage. Djo Tunda wa Munga’s flamboyant style, especially in representing sex and violence, has a likeness to Fernando Meirelles’ City of God (2002). Although, Munga directs with a different oomph that gives the film a less frantic and disturbing beat.

As a result of the gas shortages in the Congo (which makes those that can import it, by any means, kingpins as far as life in the capital Kinshasa goes) gangster Riva (Patsha Bay Mukuna) pounces on the opportunity and makes a fast buck from stealing truckloads of gas from his Angolan boss Cesar (Hoji Fortuna). With a king’s ransom in fuel, a fat bankroll and his sights set on the best the city has to offer, he returns to his hometown Mariano although a lot of people are looking for him. But he’s only set on looking for a good time. And there’s your movie!
