Synopsis

Sexe, Gombo et Beurre Sale is a comedy of manners set in France. With an ensemble cast, Haroun tells the story of a recently emigrated African family. A series of shifts shake the family, including the mother’s departure with her white lover. Malik, her husband, a macho and a very traditional man, sees his whole world turn upside down. He suddenly has to take care of two small children alone and, on top of that, discovers that his third son, a handsome young man, is homosexual. The arrival of beautiful Amina, the lonely neighbor, and of Malik’s sister in law from Abidjan, provokes quite a few surprising twists. The film explores many of Haroun’s signature topics such as absent parents and revenge versus reconciliation.
