I had to watch this movie in my African Studies class and I fell in love with Faat Kine! When African culture is taught to most Americans, we only hear about huts and primitive villages. That is all well and good but I always wanted to know how life really is in Africa. But in this movie, I saw the real, modern Africa. The life of an assertive businesswomen is never the topic of any African discussions or history. This movie broke the stereotypical mold of a black women and it showed the world that African women are not pushovers. Faat Kine, you go girl! This movie was so profound and it has left me wanting more. I am now searching for more movies of Faat Kine's caliber. I highly recommend this movie to anyone, it is a definite must see.
