Touki Bouki
Touki Bouki
1973 Senegal 85 min N-16
Added to my films

Mory and Anta are a fashionable young Senegalese couple dreaming of Paris. The story revolves around the couple's brash and illegal attempts to get enough cash for boat tickets to Europe. Touki Bouki is one of two films left by Mambéty and displays a style all its own. Martin Scorsese's Foundation digitally restored this masterpiece.
