Karmen Gei
Set in modern-day Dakar, Senegal, this vibrant, richly musical film reworks Prosper Mérimée's perennially potent story of a charismatic woman whose influence destroys the men who flock to her. Incarcerated in Kumba Castle, a women's prison, Karmen (Djeïnaba Diop Gaï) charms her way into the bed of straight-laced warden Angelique (Stéphanie Biddle) with her sensual dancing, then escapes while Angelique is asleep. Incapable of not speaking her mind, Karmen quickly gets herself arrested again by peppering her performance at the wedding of Colonel Lamine Diop (Magaye Niang) with revolutionary insults. As Lamine hustles Karmen off to jail, she works her earthy mojo on him...
