Kunene and Mohloki fall out over women, work and the car they see as a passport to wealth in an Africa defined by poverty, prostitution and the corruption of traditional values. Ouedraogo uses the 'Scope frame to vivid visual effect, holds the whole ramshackle affair together through the sheer good nature of the performances, and shows us a modern, semi-industrialised Africa all too often ignored by that continent's cinema - but the fairy tale simplicity and contrived tragic climax sit uneasily together and make for a certain superficiality.
