Product Description

A young French woman returns to the vast silence of West Africa to contemplate her childhood days in a colonial outpost in Cameroon. Her strongest memories are of the family's houseboy, Protee - a man of great nobility, intelligence and beauty - and the intricate nature of relationships in a racist society.

Nenette and Boni (1996)
Teenage siblings Nenette and Boni were raised apart as a result of their parents' divorce. Their mother, who doted on her son Boni, has died. He works for an interesting couple as a pizza baker, and is surprised and enraged when his younger sister, having run away from boarding school, suddenly turns up. There's a problem that they must confront.

Beau Travail (1999)
This film focuses on an ex-Foreign Legion officer as he recalls his once glorious life, leading troops in Africa.

A white French family outlawed in its home and attempting to save its coffee plantation connects with a black hero also embroiled in the tumult. All try to survive as their world rapidly crumbles around them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully presented 8 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This box set is beautifully presented. Each thin box is a different deep colour and together, they look brilliant. Denis's work speaks for itself. For those who are not aware of her and are buying this box set as a present, it is a fantastic introduction to Denis and modern french cinema in general
