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 »

Real Life or Something ...
25 May 2006 | by arpi-9See all my reviews

Some may call the movie a cheap paperback romance, but I find it emotional, true, beautiful - with real young people (not bored actors), real life and not some artificial Hollywood scene, with excellent soundtrack, and, even more, deep and meaningful. It's just like remembering my teenager years... While watching this movie I realized that it's so hard to be free, that you won't understand and find freedom unless there are boundaries to fight against. That most people grown up in welfare states even do not realize that they are held captive by their own laziness and will never understand freedom. Marock also expresses to me that innocence is the only real value in life, so - sooner or later - every good thing has to be paid only with it. It would be interesting to find out that the Director also had this idea in her mind when shooting 'Marock' or it's just my interpretation ... anyway, I feel free to see it in my way. Finally: only a few movie makers are able to express the great true but no common sense, and Laïla Marrakchi perfectly does it.
