Everytime I want to give up on haitian cinema, something comes up that convinces me to give it another chance. At one point it was BARIKAD, then came I LOVE YOU ANNE, Followed by VIP, MILLIONNAIRE PAR ERREUR.

But finally:PLUIE D'ESPOIR. Finally a movie where the actors become one with their characters. Finally a movie where the scenes flow into one another. Finally a movie where there is more than one song;and the songs are appropriate.

Finally a fictional story that incorporates historical facts. Finally a story where the characters are not two dimensional: they laugh;they cry;they get angry;they feel pain and they feel joy.

Finally: PLUIE D'ESPOIR.

It is the story of Toussaint. A man who leaves his country town of Leziwa, to follow his dreams in Port-au-Prince and make a better life for his wife and children.

The theme is typical; but there is nothing predictable or mundane about this impeccably written story of survival, friendship, dreams, reality, loyalty, mentorism, and most of all...life.

The comedy lighten the mood, but does not take away from the seriousness of the topic.

If you have never watched a Haitian movie, make "PLUIE D'ESPOIR your first. You will not be disappointed. If you are, you have my permission never to pick up another one again.

If you, like me, was on the verge of giving up in haitian movies, let PLUIE d'ESPOIR revive your hope in Haitian cinema.

Oh LaBelle Reine Diana,
konsa ap denigré movie moun yo Laughing Du K(au carré) même Laughing I have not seen it though... Ou tou palé mwen lè mwen tounin nan store a nan fin d'anné a pou mwen pa pran " Bwasé ak Zenglendo"... Laughing

There was like another movie of Fabienne Colas, but mwen tandé se Francais seulement yo palé ladan'l, histwa te parèt fondé, min l'heure mwen imaginé Fabienne ki pral fè interessante parlé yon ekipe Francais forcé, Confused mwen te decidé pran " Rebecca mon amour" pito. Smile

Antouka mwen pral gadé yo weekend sa.... Mwen ap tounin vin'n di wassup Cool

One luv,

Kara

Bon!
pou nouveau movie avek Fabienne Cola an min'm, if it's the one I saw tonight, it's called CONVOITISES... the movie is in french with english subtitles. In my opinion, it's a must see if you love intrigue and drama...Fabienne fe'm sexi nan movie sa. I will say the movie kept my attention for a good stretch...but there is an upset at the end, which you need to find out for yourself...still it's a must see...
