30 hand picked films. A new one every day
This satrical film uses visuals of Dakar’s architecture and two offscreen narrators, one French, the other Senegalese, to illustrate the blend of colonial and native influences mixing within the city.
This has been called a comedy, but it is really a documentary, with a bit of sarcasm. Senegalese cinema is great, not enough people know that. Maybe because there just isn't enough of it, but what there is, is great.
I became a fan of this the moment this line was uttered: "...so they abandoned the Quran for the liquoran". Hahaha, Mambety shares my fondness for wordplay.
