Summer, 1967. La Goulette, the touristic beach of Tunisi, is the site where three nice seventeen-year-old girls live: Gigi, sicilian and catholic; Meriem, Tunisian and Arab; Tina, French and Jewish. They would like to have their first sexual experience during that summer, challenging their families. Their fathers, Youssef, Jojo and Giuseppe, are old friends and their friendship will be in crisis because of the girls, while Hadj, an old rich Arab, would like to marry Meriem. Written by
Un ete a la goulette is a storie about three fathers of three daughters who are each of a different religion (muslim, Christian and a Jewish). The fathers are struggling to maintain their daughters virginity. However the daughters are young and want to explore their sexuality. This is all set in a small tunisian coastal town in the sixties. The ambiance is very nostalgic (old men playing cards in the local bar). There is also an erotic flavour to it especially when an old rich man falls in love with one of the daughters. The movie is pleasant to watch and very stylish. I gave it eight stars
