FULL SYNOPSIS

Although based on a novel by Georges Simenon, director (and songwriter) [[Performer~P90849~Serge Gainsbourg~sergegainsbourg]] has superimposed several dark emotions and a subtle brutality over the weak plot about a man's trip to Africa and his unfortunate passion for a murderess whose amorality sends the disillusioned fellow back to Europe. Sometimes described as frustrating and self-centered, reactions to this film swing across a broad spectrum of complaints -- not the least might be whether or not Gainsbourg is using a clichéd and stereotypical view of "dark Africa" to convey what he sees in his characters. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
