Nice scenes about Tunisia but sometimes too mannered.
5 November 2002 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

This movie seems to slog to be very deep and seedy - but IMHO there is not so much message in it, however it shows spectacular images about the life of Tunisia in the fifties. Medhi Rebii and Hichem Rostom acts quite convincingly.
