Heading South

Heading South

Karen Young ("The Sopranos") stars in this naughty Euro version of How Stella Got her Groove Back. Young is a tourist who ends up in 1970s Haiti looking for some fun in the sun. She find it amid the handsome native boys who are more than happy to indulge middle-aged foreigners' carnal desires for a few bucks. Trouble sets in, however, when two of our tourists (Young and still-got-it 60-year-old Charlotte Rampling) set their sights on one man. Issues of love, sex, loneliness, commerce and post-colonial power abound in this lovely if dry think-piece from French director Laurent Cantet (Time Out, Human Resources).
