Summary
This hypnotic tone poem confirms Sissako's talent for capturing the essence of a place through evocative imagery, low-key comedy, and close observation of everyday life. Abdallah returns to his homeland, a seaside town of Nouadhibou in Mauritania, for an indeterminate amount of time. Now a stranger to his own community and language, the young man tries to absorb as much local color (literally and figuratively) as he can before embarking for Europe
