La noire de...

Ousmane Sembène Senegal, 1966

mjgildea's rating of the film Black Girl

I'll admit I couldn't entirely get my head around the style but I guess I spent more time trying to figure out who was the bigger asshole -- Diouana for being pissy about her demotion (to a position for which she initially applied) or her asshat employers. Probably both but more so the latter. I liked it even if I still don't recognize the big deal it supposed to be. The short running time didn't hurt either.
