Set in the 1960s this comedy, based on the autobiographical novel of the same title by Haitian author Dany Laferriere this comedy centers on the sexploits of an aspiring African writer living in Montreal. When not clacking away on his novel (same as the title), he is out picking up white women from the local cafes.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The whole movie is a series of missed possibilities and superficial characters."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Meant as a commentary on racial stereotyping, the bestseller turned motion picture is little more than an offensively titled low-budget look at scoring with white women in Montreal."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"If the makers of this film were trying to push the boundaries they succeeded, only they pushed them backwards."
‑ Oz,
"Less a conscience-searing tract than a playful good time."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"The provocative title tells it all."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The film takes its pride in sexual gamesmanship much more seriously than it takes anything else, and it offers no larger context than that of skirt-chasing for the examination of serious ideas."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"A very soft sex farce that is neither as raunchy as many R-rated comedies nor as funny as it would like to be."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
