Storyline

Abdullah 'Ap' Bentarek may be happy that, unlike his Uncle Yusuf who stayed in the ancestral Moroccan mountain village, his own father, Ali, moved to the Netherlands. However, the boy has lousy friends, who are his partners in crime (in the legal sense), and unrealistic expectations at the employment office. Even when a relative gets him the office job he claimed to crave in the very bank his mates dream of robbing, he messes it up in a single day and rejoins the louts. Meanwhile his sister Leila refuses to be married off, and kid brother Driss abuses father's ignorance of the Dutch language to pretend the school's complaints about him are compliments.

An actually funny Dutch comedy...
20 February 2004 | by (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Although I normally do not like comedies (I prefer subtle humor in films that are about something else then just making jokes), Shouf Shouf Habibi definitely put some smiles on my face. Some subtle, intelligent jokes, some tougher. Good acting, interesting actors. To me this film showed that the general image about Moroccans that is spread in Holland can be true, but isn't always, and that there are always different stories for different people. Good humor, making you think, what else does a comedy want?
