From the modest but rich film industry of Senegal comes the dramatic mystery MADAME BROUETTE. Mati and her daughter Ndèye survive in the city of Dakar by selling produce from a cart. She has long sworn off men after divorcing her abusive husband, and inspires her friend Ndaxté to do the same. But her resolve is tested when she meets handsome and charming policeman Naago. As she and Naago continue their relationship, she discovers her rosy picture of him slowly shattered by his womanizing and corruption. When Naago is found dead outside Mati's home, she is the immediate and obvious suspect in the murder...but is it possible that someone else is behind it? MADAME BROUETTE explores the conditions of women in Senegal through the trope of the murder mystery. Year of release in the UK: 2005
