Matòbo is a fictional North African country; the capital is Bathom and the country is ruled by King Hajib II until 2008 when the Islamic Front takes power with the support of the terror network al-Irhabi led by Fajr al-Zowari.

About Matòbo

Note that this is not the same country or flag as the fictional African country Matobo in the movie The Interpreter.
Marcus Wendel, 31 Augustus 2008

The producers/scriptwriters of this film seem to have run out of inspiration. Could they really not come up with an appropriate sounding name of a fictional African state of their own, rather than copying someone else's? Moreover, the name "Matobo" in The Interpreter is derived from the Matopo Hills in Zimbabwe — the state in that film is strongly based on Zimbabwe and the name used has a distinctly authentic ring to it. However, this name is not at all redolent of North Africa and it seems a somewhat bizarre choice — one hopes the plot is better than the stylisation.
