An Uncommon Woman
This sassy and hilarious film tells the story of successful businesswoman Mina, who catches her unemployed husband Dominique cheating on her with Aicha, the neighbour’s wife. Mina reacts in a completely unexpected way – one that catches Dominique completely off-guard. Building on the recent successes of Burkinabé television comedy and sporting great physical humour from its veteran actors, An Uncommon Woman takes a buoyant, entertaining approach to a serious subject. This tale of many twists is part of a long tradition of male African directors poking fun at their own sex and its pretensions to dominance.
