I borrowed the movie from Evanston Library and watched it with neighbors and friends. A wonderful film! I'm glad Elza and her dad finally reconnected at the end of the film.

The natural beauty and quality infrastructure of the island of Guadeloupe, in the Caribbean, contrasts sharply with the philandering, racism and misogyny exhibited by Elza's estranged father. Why Elza continued to yearn for a rapprochement with him remains a mystery to this viewer. Hopefully Elza gains insight on the reasons for her mother's escape to Paris and makes a reconciliation upon her return.
