African Ibrahim Maiga is a renowned R&B artist, who lives in Europe. One day he receives a letter from his father, the chief of Ibrahim's tribe that he must marry Nene. She has been married off to him since their childhood. Ibrahim dislikes the idea and he asks his fan Zuzana to accompany him to Africa as his supposed wife, so the wedding can be cancelled. Things are getting difficult when the chief doesn't want to cancel the wedding and Zuzana falls in love with Michael, a journalist who is writing a report about Ibrahim's tribe. Written by Arnoud Tiele (zelva@tiele.nl)

User Reviews

Good sequel
29 August 2002 | by ValsodarSee all my reviews

First Fontain for Susan was a typical communist movie for young people, slick good music and so. Second Fontain for Susan was typical post- communist movie. Also good music, but the lead character- Susane, it is so strange feeling, she was so clear before- and now... The sequel was too long and pretty boring. And I have a dirty feeling from it. But this, A Fontain for Susan 3 is a typical commercial movie in all courses. Big promotional campaign, big box- offices (I talk about Slovakia, it is a Slovak movie- that is a little country in the middle of Europe, a post- communist country). Virtually full movie is situated in Africa- near the Victoria falls, it has great camera, sound, stage settings and cast, act... this movie is simply good work. But the story is... it is a ordinary story from red - library for woman. The writting is not so good. Otherwise, as I have said, it is a good work, and feeding for eyes. At all.. I recomend it. In> Germany it is avilable on DVD, as Viva Africa. I give 7 out of 10.
