Passion that ignites a love between Luxemborg to Algiers.
22 May 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Nuits d'Arabie is a film where the detailed photography and the juxtaposition between two extraordinarily different lives mesh in a film about love. The neat ordered life of Georges (Jules Werner) and the tattered uncertain life of Yamina (Sabrina Ouazai) are both shaken when they meet by chance. The film provides a naive and optimistic view of how love can change one's life. The protagonist's simple desire to launch into a relationship with a stranger on a train builds as the film explores the ideas of love between cultures.

The settings move from the city lights of Luxemborg to the simplicity and stark beauty of the Algerian desert scape. The use of light within the film plays on the face of the enigmatic and ever-changing visage of the beautiful Yamina and paints a picture of a woman whose life shifts between and among the shadows of a contemporary and sometimes violent world.

Georges, a man who relinquishes everything because of his desire, and love, is driven by the kind of passionate confusion that makes him endearing to an audience.

The considered direction of Paul Kieffer(who also shares a writing credit with Philippe Blasband) builds the audience's relationship with Yamina and Georges through interesting, and circular narrative structures. Nuits d'Arabie takes the audience on a journey where they want Georges search for his Yamina to culminate in the romantic dream of 'happily ever after'.
