In Jean-Pierre Bekolo's 1992 comedy-fantasy charmer from Cameroon, a young girl betrays too much curiosity for her age, and a witch transforms her into a man. He/she promptly joins a male gang and starts romancing the daughter of a neighborhood cop—herself. The plot carries a few echoes of George Axelrod's play Goodbye Charlie, but what's most notable about this first feature is how much its eclectic style owes to Spike Lee, even though its folkloric content and sexual politics are quite different. Bekolo's overall handling of his cast is delightful. With Sandrine Ola'a, Serge Amougou, Jimmy Biyong, and Essindi Mindja.
