Same old location.
27 May 2003 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Samia" tells an old story about a teenager who rebels against her family values asserting her demands to be her own person. In the case of "Samia", the teen is an Algerian girl living with a traditional Muslim family in France. During this short film we get to see Samia sulking, fighting with her brother, sulking, hanging out with friends, sulking, going to the seashore, sulking, refusing to have her hymen examined and, yeah, more sulking. The film shows some traditional and presumably Algerian costuming, dancing, music, meals, etc. in this little indie sorely lacking in story and execution. Pass on Samia. (C-)

Note: The version I Tivo'd had white subtitles with no outline making it very difficult to read the white words on light backgrounds.
