The Agronomist. Is a documentary about bananas and the republics (?) [2][3] where they are grown. Exquisite, tasty ,yellow and refreshing, this fruit was cultivated by some determined people. Get a video sample on agronomism or learn more about juicy melons.

This was a good flick. Jean Dominique was fascinating.

bananas aren't melons. Both Bananas and melons are false berries though.

Thanks to this post, I now know a bit about Jean Dominique. What an inspiring person! What cojones. And it sounds like he was a man of integrity. Now I really want to see the Demme movie. Thanks elpapacito.

I'm a bit perplexed by the Dancing banana porn though. :)

I saw the movie and bought the DVD years ago it seems. Unfortunately, this post does no justice to how good the movie is.

The movie is better than you think. No matter how good you think it is, it's better :)

Jean Dominique's assassination is still a source of huge pain and anger in the Haitian community. To say the justice system has been moving slowly is something of an understatement.
