Last weekend I saw the pilot film of "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" (made in 2008) based on a book by Alexander McCall Smith. A writer born in Bulawayo-Zimbabwe. Just splendid and hilarious. A must see !!
Plot summary: (Copied from wikipedia - sorry did not have the energy anymore to write my own comments -but just wanted to share a found jewel).
Mma Precious Ramotswe becomes a private detective, the first woman in Botswana to enter that profession, and opens an agency whose name indicates this unique situation. Motivated to help others and to make Botswana a better place, she encounters many dangerous and risky obstacles in the course of her investigations, but succeeds through using her intelligence, courage and instinct. Along with the plot developments, Mma Ramotswe provides observations upon the fine qualities of Botswana and Africa: the culture, traditions, and natural beauties found there, and the inhabitants' pride in their land.
