"Le Harem of Madame Ousmane" is a big house, with different flats where different kind of women are surviving the Algerian Civil War by developing their own coping mechanisms. The subject is difficult and the producer succeeds to avoid political statements by focusing on the way of life of these different women. It gives us an opportunity to enter the core of the Algerian people, their doubts, their dreams about Europe and France but also all the troubles that couples can face during these hard times. I watched it in french, have no idea of the quality of the subtitles for non french owners.I am convinced that the previous comment is not adequate for this movie. There is, for sure, a misunderstanding about the title.
