Interesting look at modern Senegalese life
1 April 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Faat Kiné bore two children out of wedlock by two men, but managed to raise them without help from the fathers. She has risen to manage a gasoline station and is somewhat well off, owning a house and a small car. When her children pass college entry exams, the fathers come around asking for respect and more.

A colorful but episodic look at life in modern Dakar, revolving around the people Faat Kiné meets over several days. Moves along quickly but even minor characters appear several times, so you can get to know them. The print I saw was 118 minutes.
