Directed by Ousmane Sembène | 1975

With Thierno Leye, Miriam Niang, Makhouredia Gueye

A snooty Senegalese businessman (Leye)—he drives a Mercedes and drinks water imported from France—blames his inability to get it up anymore on his three wives… but comeuppance awaits. Equating impotence with colonialist sympathies, Sembène’s cunning satire is a comic delight, until it explodes with righteous anger. “Cutting, radiant and hilarious… Animal Farm applied to African independence (The New York Times).
