France 2005 • Directed by Laurent Cantet • Feature Film • 108 minutes

The setting is a beach resort in late 70s Haiti, where middle-aged North American women go to be sexually pampered by young black men, rewarding them with economic and quasi-maternal favours. “Welcome to Paradise,” says the resort’s alpha female Ellen to newcomer Brenda, but it’s clear that this is anything but paradise. Outside the hotel’s artificial bubble, the Duvalier regime is in power, and it can’t be long before Legba, the young man favoured by both Ellen and Brenda, falls foul of the all-powerful Macoute militia.
