The feature debut of Alain Gomis recalls the 1966 classic by Ousmane Sembene, Black Girl. It is a serious film about a Senegalese immigrant to Paris who wrestles with issues of identity, race, and family. There is no tomfoolery or gimmicky cinema here, just straightforward and probing shots that never lose focus of one man’s inner struggle.
