I return to the queen of clubs...
20 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

The last lines explain what may seem obscure to the viewer.To some,it may also seem immoral.

Two orphans ,a brother and a sister ,live together ;none of them seem to have a boy/girlfriend.The boy gets involved in shady business and ,one day ,accidentally kills the trafficker.

The siblings share the same bed ,but their incest relationship remains platonic.Both are still living in their childhood:they have apparently never come to terms with the parents' loss.Malik Zidi is particularly convincing with his childlike look.

Not an easy movie to watch,very slow-moving ,and an odd title :"queen of clubs";what do you suppose that means?
