    A clever adaptation of a Jim Thompson novel, with the plot being transposed to 1930's French West Africa. It depicts a corrupt and at times brutal society but despite the story being quite dark, (mostly bitter) humour is consistently present throughout the movie. Great acting all around. 5 years 5 months ago
