Goofs

One of the movie's defining images is the heroine, Rita (played by Morjana Alaoui) sunbathing with friends on her house's terrace during Ramadan 1997. While not impossible, it would have been very unlikely to take a sunbath in that period because Ramadan 1997 coincided with wintertime (from January to February) and winters are fairly cold, even in the Mediterranean town of Casablanca, See more »

Well made, good acting, a little unfocused
12 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in Casablanca (actually in Ain Diab where the movie was set) and found myself some what disappointed. Perhaps I had expected the film to focus a bit more on the religious/romantic conflict itself but it just seemed more determined to show how wealthy and privileged the characters lives are than the emotions they had to deal with regarding their parents disapproval. The Dad had about 5 minutes of screen time to yell at his daughter and seemed to forget about the whole thing right away. Oh well. As far as conflicts go, it doesn't make sense to portray a Muslim parent's concern about his daughter's relationship with a Jew as backwards and old-fashioned. Many liberal American parents would have the same kind of concerns. Other than that the movie was well filmed and had a good soundtrack. I actually had the opportunity to meet some people like the characters in the film and yes, cruising in ultra expensive cars is a popular activity when the clubs are cold.
