All life issues in a gombo
19 July 2008 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

The story takes place in the French city of Bordeaux, inside the African community. Sex issues, loneliness, tradition and modernity, interracial relationships, conflict of generations...all these issues are depicted in a humorous manner, as the characters all remain serious. A 70 years old man from Ivory Coast is living with his 45 years old wife who is a nurse, and their 2 youngest child boys. One day, the nurse falls in love with a young white man who is an oyster-farmer in Arcachon and leaves the family apartment. The same day, her husband discovers that their oldest son, who lives in town and works for a car-seller, is gay. Shame! But soon, the gay son is requested by his younger brothers to come and help them because their old father is totally unable to run a house and becomes to drink. Meanwhile, the white neighbor of this family, a 50 years old bachelor woman grasps the opportunity to help and seduce the old African. Other women invade the story: the African sister in law coming right from Ivory Coast and a young and mysterious pregnant girl without a roof on her head. The old fashioned brothers of our 70 years old hero symbolize the African morale. It is a movie but could have been a cartoon, actors and actresses being able to drive a lot of emotions by making wonderful story-telling faces. It's a pity it is only a TV show.
