    Roger Ebert told about this film as: "One of the best movies I've ever seen in a long time". You can read it from the film's poster.
    However, it's not in the "Roger Ebert: the great movies" list. WTF ???

    A fine, bittersweet film. Good performances all around, but Douta Seck is exceptional as Mr. Medouze. 7 years 4 months ago

    Sugar Cane Alley would be the more correct/known title. 9 years 2 months ago
