Sugar Cane Alley

In the colonial Martinique of 1931, a black woman (Darling Legitimus) works to save her grandson from the life of the sugar plantations, determined to send him to the city to get an education. An unusual portrait of life in the French colonies, graced by a convincing evocation of time and place but compromised by a formulaic, conventionally sentimental screenplay. Euzhan Palcy (A Dry White Season) directed this 1983 feature; with Garry Cadenat and Doula Seck. In French with subtitles. 107 min.
