"Xala" (1975)

Recommended Posts

Submitted for your approval, an African movie, set in a post-independence former French colony. (Senegal?) The French officials are turned out and the native African "businessmen" take their places to run the country for "the people." However, briefcases are presented to each of the new officials by smarmy-looking White men. The action shifts to a prominent businessman/government official who seeks to take a third wife. He steals from "the people," but on his wedding night, "the cigar" goes limp. What will he do and how far will he go to remedy the situation?
