Overview

Synopsis

Hyenas
This Senegalese film is based on the play The Visit by Friedrich Durrenmatt. The Wolof-language film satirizes the influence of Western materialism on traditional Africa as Linguerre (Ami Diakhate), a Senegalese woman, returns to her village after a life in exile. Thirty years earlier, she became pregnant by a local merchant (Mansour Diouf). The man denied her claims that he was the child's father and went further to accuse her of adultery with other men from the village. The woman's life in exile has actually been quite prosperous, while her village is in a state of poverty. Linguerre is wealthy, and is willing to bail the village out of its financial misfortune -- in exchange for the life of the man who betrayed her decades earlier. The film holds a sharply critical view of capitalism and its effect on traditional values. ~ Jonathan E. Laxamana, Rovi
