TV series about a Maroccon and a Dutch teenie girl in Amsterdam.
Nice DVD, Dunya + Desie 1. It tells the story about a Dutch and a Maroccan girl. Both 15 years old, first boyfriends, first sex, different cultures but always: the best friends. Lots of humour, a must see series, especially these days now in Holland there are tensions between the Dutch and the Arab people. This series shows that friendship can solve a lot of problems.
The series is available on DVD and is nominated for the Emmy Award. On the DVD is the first series: 7 x 25 minutes, the second and third series will be released later (I hope) and maybe there will be made a feature film also.
