Moi et mon blanc

Mamadi is struggling to complete a doctorate at a Parisian university after the government of his country has stopped paying his scholarship. Thanks to his acquaintances in the African community, he finds a job as night watchman in an underground car park. There, a French colleague, Franck, helps the friendly African academic getting around. However, the car park is also a meeting point for dubious characters, and when Mamadi accidentally wrecks a drug trafficking operation, Franck is really hard-pressed to put his pal and himself out of harm's way. Wouldn't Mamadi's home country be the ideal place to escape the gangsters' wrath?

FESPACO Ouagadougou 2003: Prix du public

Le Prix RFI Cinéma du Public 2003

«Un film qui, sur le ton de l'humour, raconte les galères parisiennes d'un Africain avant de décrire les tribulations d'un de ses amis français perdu dans un Ouagadougou qui lui est inconnu.»

La Gazette, Burkina Faso



«S.Pierre Yameogo erkundet die Komplexität kultureller Unterschiede mit reizvoller Leichtigkeit. Diese Komödie um eine merkwürdige interkulturelle Freundschaft weist zahlreiche

vergnügliche Seiten auf.»

Variety



Saint Pierre Yaméogo, pose dans ce film qui est son 5ème long métrage l'épineux problème de l'immigration intellectuelle avec ses aléas socio-économiques, culturels et politiques. Ce film de plus d'un milliard de FCFA traite de l'humiliation subie par les étudiants africains en Europe en proie à de multiples tracasseries. Il a été tourné en Afrique et en Europe. Au nombre des comédiens qui viennent des deux continents, on peut retenir Serge Bayala du Burkina dont le coup d'essai semble avoir été un coup de maître.
