Hyenes / Hyenas (1992) DVD5
A dark comedy from Senegal, Hyenas is set in a drought- and poverty-stricken village in which life centers around the general store/pub of an indulgent shopkeeper. All this is upset when, after a 30-year absence, a former resident returns, wealthy and ready to offer the town an exorbitant amount of cash in exchange for the death of the lover who jilted her after a love affair and her illegitimate pregnancy when she was 16.
Adapted from Friedrich Durrenmatt's stage play "The Visit".
