Mama Aloko

Directed by Jean Odoutan
France, 2002


An African restaurant run by a matronly woman, Mama Aloko, runs the place. She’s faced with the laziness of the wards of the social welfare services, the mind-numbing advice of a failed writer, beggars, her own loneliness, skinheads and most of all, her broken-down-down fridge.
