"La Vieille Dame et l'Africain" is a film about two cultures coming into contact with one another. It is also a story about childish simplicity rubbing against the sort of sympathetic tolerance that comes with age.
Filmed in Paris, this is fundamentally a periodic dialog between the two main subjects, where Danielle Darrieux is truly eloquent and Maka Kotto is absolutely delightful.
Having lived in Africa, I've had the pleasure of observing the simple, innocent naughtiness of young, African men. This film is genuine.
"La Vieille Dame et l'Africain" must certainly be the most charming film that I have ever seen. It is possibly the most charming film ever made.
