Félicité, free and proud, is a singer in the evenings in a bar in Kinshasa. Her life changes when her 14-year-old son is the victim of a motorcycle accident. To save him, she begins a frantic race through the streets of an electric Kinshasa, a world of music and dreams.
A female screen presence like Félicité was long overdue! A strong-willed yet vulnerable, voluptuous yet motherly, playful yet vehement woman is the indelible titular character in Gomis’ Silver Bear winner. A film of raw, exuberant sensuality, entrancing music and both surreal and neorealist beauty.
