Viva Riva!

Kinshasa is calling


Viva Riva!
A small time operator has just returned to his home town of Kinshasa, Congo with a major score: a fortune in hijacked petrol. With wads of cash and all out for a good time, he is soon entranced by a beautiful nightclub siren, who is the kept woman of a local gangster. Things get complicated when his Angolan crime lord ex-boss turns up seeking the return of a certain stolen shipment of petrol. Expect a lot of graphic sex and violence. In French and Lingala with English subtitles.

94 minutes.

I smell petrol ... or is it trouble?
