Recommended! "Eye-opening De la Parra depicts his [protagonist's] rediscovery of Suriname as an exuberant rite of passage, rich in flora, music, and fashion." -Chicago Reader
Roy (Borger Breeveld) is a young black Surinamese studying in Amsterdam. When he learns that his mother is seriously ill, he borrows money from his Dutch girlfriend to return home. Surprisingly, Roy finds himself coping with an inner struggle when he sets foot on land in his native country. He had seemingly acclimated to the Netherlands, but he begins to have doubts about his cultural identity as he becomes re-acquainted not only with the history of his nation, but also of his parents and ancestors as well. Events then take a different turn when he scandalizes everyone by having a relationship with Rubia, a Hindu nurse from community is imbued with its own customs and rituals and sees the relationship between Rubia and Roy as a disgrace, proving that discrimination occurs among all groups. Directed by Pim de la Parra, Suriname/Netherlands, 1976, 111 mins. In Dutch, Hindustani, Sranan and Tongo with English subtitles
