“Cerebral and understated, Touki Bouki has a fragmented narrative, an abundance of semi-documentary vignettes, and echoes of Pierrot le Fou, another fanciful tale of mad love in the noonday sun.” —J. Hoberman, Village Voice

"One of the greatest of all African films and almost certainly the most experimental. Beautifully shot and strikingly conceived, it follows the comic misadventures of a young motorcyclist and former herdsman who gets involved in petty crimes in Dakar during an attempt to escape to Paris with the woman he loves.” —Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader. In Wolof with English titles.
