AN UNCOMMON WOMAN \ 108 mins \ Burkina Faso

Mina is tired of her husband's infidelity and decides to take a drastic decision: She takes a second husband. Based on his conversations with women involved in polygamist relationships, filmmaker Abdoulaye Dao illustrates - to very funny effects - the daily life of two persons - in this case two men - who share a spouse. On a comedic tone, Dao tells us a story of jealousy, infidelity, romance and revenge.
