Les Rayures du Zèbre
José Stockman (Benoît Poelvoorde) is a Belgian soccer scout scouring the Ivory Coast for top players; he thinks he's found one in Yaya Koné (Marc Zinga). But when the rookie's tryout for the Zebras team doesn't go smoothly, both men have to rethink their assumptions about the game. Collaborating for the third time with writer-director Mariage, Poelvoorde strikes just the right tone as the opportunistic but humane sports agent, producing laughs without obscuring the film's deeper issues. "A darkly comic post-colonial satire with real heart." - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter.
