Lettres d'amour en Somalie

Synopsis

In its own way, Frédéric Mitterrand’s film is a continuation of those tales of travel so popular in the 19th century. It is a film-letter wherein the traveler, who we only hear in voice-over, shares his impressions of Africa while also telling of his disappointments in love.
