Mama Aloko

A Feature film by Jean Odoutan

Produced by 45 rdlc

Release in France : 23/01/2002

    Synopsis

    Paris. The Belleville district, rue Sainte-Marthe.
    An African restaurant where alokos and fried bananas are sold. A matronly woman, Mama Aloko, runs the place. She’s faced with the laziness of the wards of the social welfare services, the mind-numbing advice of a failed writer, beggars, her own loneliness, skinheads and most of all, her broken-down fridge which is the cause of all her problems…
    Poor Mama Aloko! She needs to find a thousand francs to buy a new fridge and thus avoid closing her notorious restaurant where the riff-raff of Paris-in-the-Bush come looking for a bit of love and human warmth. Will she make it out of the woods?
