Storyline

In the capital of Burkina Faso, a band of young people tries to survive and thrive vis-a-vis the thousand and one temptations. Adventures of a band of youngsters, living in a stripped district of Ouagadougou, who seek hopes. The easy way and ingeniousness compensate for the money which often is lacking. Sadness is banished of a resolutely optimistic way of life. Plunders and odd jobs constitute the daily newspaper of this struggle for life. The ones will succeed modestly, the others will fail more or less but a great solidarity of group remains... Written by Anonymous

Defective, but still enjoyable
16 August 2010 | by Karl SelfSee all my reviews

Ouaga Saga is a hodgepodge of stories from Ouagadogou, capital of Burkina Faso. Probably the original script didn't fully pan out, or never existed in the first place, so we get a loose bundle of stories centering around a bunch of street urchins who nick a scooter and consequently rake in an unprecedented amount of cold cash. One of them buys a guitar to pursue his musical career, another buys a pair of second-hand soccer shoes (guaranteed to be previously worn by Paris St- Germain!), another buys a lottery ticket. Then a flash businessman appears on the scene, and, erm, in the end there's a football game. Roll credits.

Okay, so we're not in Hollywood anymore, Toto, but deep in the heart of Africa. Sure, there's a script somewhere, and you'll get it -- ah, tomorrow. Or the day after. But still the individual stories are told convincingly and captivatingly, the music is hypnotic and there are even some CGI FX. What this movie lacks in perfection, it makes up in charm. Enjoy the ride.
