In the early morning light, in the neighbourhood known as "Niayes Thiokeert", or "Partridge Hill", shots ring out. Naago falls the ground, riddled with bullets, in front of the neighbours, who have rushed to the scene. The woman whom everybody knows as "Madame Brouette" (Mrs Wheelbar-row) claims to have killed her husband. And yet everybody in the neighbourhood is full of praise for this young divorcee, a street vendor of fruit and vegetables and the mother of a little girl.
The film traces the story of Madame Brouette back in time to understand what could have led to such an act on her part.

SUOMEKSI / FINNISH

Madame Brouette

Mati on sisukas katumyyjä ja yksinhuoltajaäiti, jonka koko kylä tuntee lempinimellä Madame Brouette (rouva Kottikärryt). Mati on ylpeä ja itsenäinen nainen, joka uhmaa kulttuurinsa miehisiä traditioita. Väkivaltaisesta avioliitosta paettuaan Mati päättää avata kahvilan, unohtaa miehet ja elää arvokasta elämää ympäröivästä hyväksikäytön maailmasta huolimatta. Romanssi sulavasanaisen poliisin Naagon kanssa sotkee kuitenkin hänen suunnitelmansa. Kun naapurusto herää laukauksiin, kaikki sormet osoittavat Matia.
Tämä palkittu, visuaalisesti antoisa ja teräviä huomioita tekevä yhteiskuntasatiiri on yksi uuden afrikkalaisen elokuvan helmiä.

Senegal/Canada | 2002 | 104 min
