Czechoslovakia’s Filmový přehled (29/1961) called the film an acted documentary about the life of three young immigrants in the town of Abidjan. It was nevertheless an absolutely original work within the French New Wave, free in terms of both form and content.

“All great fiction films resemble documentaries, just as all great documents tend towards fiction. […] From now on, everything plays out as if Nietzsche’s famous statement that ‘we have art in order not to die of the truth’ was the greatest lie on earth.” J.-L. Godard
