Storyline

After the death of her husband, Lilia's life revolves solely around her teenage daughter, Salma. Whilst looking for Salma late one night, Lilia stumbles upon a belly dance cabaret and though initially reserved and taken aback by the culture of the place, Lilia gets consistently drawn back to it. She befriends one of the belly dancers and is encouraged into dancing for the audience. Lilia also starts a romance with one of the cabaret's musicians, who unbeknown to both of them, is also romancing Salma. Written by madjanssen

i loved this film
30 September 2002 | by (california) – See all my reviews

great coming of age film about a middle aged woman who finds out that she has a lot of life in her and to live. and i loved the sound track!

the comment has been made that the first half of the film was slow but i just found it very "french". however, the 2nd half of the film was not edited nearly as well.

its good to see a film in which older women are portrayed as sensually desirable!
