Storyline

Tells the story of an idealistic young politician's rise and fall. Daam, a well-intentioned but vacillating European-trained politician must choose between two social paradigms exemplified by his two wives. The first, Gagnesiri, is the village beauty, who waits patiently for Daam. Unfortunately, they are unable to conceive a child, so Daam takes European-educated Kiné, who is eager to get ahead by marrying a politician. Daam becomes involved in a shady business deal with Président, a local businessman; when the details are made public, he is forced out in disgrace. Written by Geoffrey Skinner <gskinner@stanford.edu>

Is this out on video? I want a copy
20 October 2000 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

I've been looking for a tape of this; I saw it so long ago and under such groggy conditions that I forget a lot of it. I do remember that the story was fast-paced and involving, and as the only Senegalese picture I've seen so far, refreshingly different. I especially want to see Ndeye Fatou Ndaw again; she's haunting in the movie as Daam's martyred first wife, Gagnesiri. What a film career she ought to have. I particularly love/hate the painful scene where she's ostracized by a group of village women.
