Storyline

At a festival, a chorus of women sing and dance as two stories unfold. In a village, a young women with a jealous husband gives him something to be jealous about when his younger brother comes for a visit. When her husband threatens her, she learns self-defense, but her troubles may not be over. In a coastal city, Mrs. Congas runs a fish-drying business. She wants a less smelly job, so she seeks a loan to open a restaurant. When she's turned down, two of her daughters visit the banker and bat their eyes; the loan comes through. But her troubles aren't over: every male relative and tribal cousin shows up, praising her lazy husband and expecting money, food, and help. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

one of the best movies about west African people
13 January 2004 | by (dc, usa) – See all my reviews

the movie is set in ivory coast and concerns itself about the plight of women in the region. refreshingly, it is not preachy, but rather illuminates through simple story telling and scenes of everyday life of the people. the opening shot is of women gathering to dance together, to which the men join and overall a festival is started. this is the underpinning theme of the movie in that despite what else happens in life all ivory coast people join together and renew themselves by singing and dancing.

there are 2 stories. one of a village woman who experiences martial problems which lead to her seduction by a city slicker. there is an explicit lengthy sex/seduction scene, but it is also very refreshing and not degrading. the woman is in charge!!! the second is about a supposedly emancipated woman, who lives in the city and has her own business. she is rich, yet has her own share of problems.

I highly RECOMMEND this movie. after watching it i found myself enthralled by the culture of that region and the complexities and joys to be found in it.
