Bonus

Une fillette répondant au nom de Chef de Quartier est, au goût de la sorcière Mam Thecla, un peu trop curieuse pour son âge. Celle-ci, pour la punir, décide de la transformer en jeune homme; et c'est ainsi que commencent ses mésaventures. Quartier Mozart est une chronique urbaine de la vie moderne africaine, un hymne à la vie dans les quartiers d'Afrique.

Re-imagining several folk tales into a contemporary setting, director Jean-Pierre Bekolo's first feature film recounts the story of a young girl who is magically transformed into a swaggering Casanova nicknamed "My Guy". While the focus is on "My Guy", several offbeat characters crowd the show, including a polygamist police chief whose daughter "My Guy" seduces and a witch whose handshake can make men's genitals disappear. The combination of highly westernized characters and the charged folk tale atmosphere form a vision of today's Africa. Quartier Mozart is as humorous as it is revealing and depicts the powerful influence of western pop culture. Director: Jean-Pierre Bekolo Cameroon, 1992,80 min Languages: French Source: www.africanfilmny.org/2012/quartier-mozart/
