Fisherman Jean-Marie has lived with his wife for over 30 years, but his eyes still light up when he recalls their first meeting. A few doors away a mechanic proudly shows his wedding video and discusses his marriage with joy. By contrast, Ousmane, a student, is suffering. He could write a narrative poem for his beloved, but there is one small secret he cannot share. These and many other types of love in a small town in Burkina Faso are recorded in this winning documentary, which to some extent recalls the successful arranged 'ethnofiction' approach of Jean Rouch. The subject of relationships opens a space for reflection on a number of linked questions. Some are comical: do girls really prefer older guys with mopeds? Can a man sweep at home without humiliating himself in front of the neighbours? Others are more serious: how does polygamy influence relationships? How can one protect oneself from AIDS? This film is full of humour, beautifully composed scenes, and of course love.
