a young man with a rigid father pursues true love that is unacceptable to his disapproving father
20 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I visited Morocco once and loved the Medina, so I enjoyed this story about a young man whose father is rigid and conservative and disapproves of his son's pursuit of his own dreams. The color was beautiful and vivid. The characters were interesting and believable. Some of the scenes were simply stunning. The romantic characters were beautiful and appealing. The story itself seemed authentic to what I have experienced in Morocco. The story blended some very humorous moments with some very poignant ones. I found the tension between the father's religious inflexibility and the son's desire for personal fulfillment to be quite challenging, as I consider myself a religiously devoted individual myself.
