An absolute philosophical tale, this recently released film (January 9, 2013 in France) caught the attention of all French film critics and narrates the last journey of Satché, a young Senegalese man who knows death is waiting for him. It’s time to take stock: last family reunion, last moments spent with his friends and kids, final encounter with his first love, final moment of passion with his wife.

"With this introspective journey, Alain Gomis signs a deeply moving work, beautiful and gentle, of great spiritual intensity.” (La Croix)

"Senegalese version of ‘Le vierge, le vivace et le bel aujourd’hui’ (The virgin, vivid and beautiful today). Grace and mystery.” (Les Inrockuptibles)
