The patriarch and his family
10 June 2019 | by zutterjp48See all my reviews

Moulay Hassan Ben Amor, a wealthy industrialist and father of 4 daughters has died.For his funeral all the family will be together.Sofia ,who went to United States for her carreer of actress and her sisters with her husbands.All remember then the story of the patriarch and some family secrets are revealed. I enjoyed very much this film : a dramatic but also pleasant comedy about a rich family with it's mutual reproaches and tremendous secrets. Laïla Marrakchi is a Moroccan director (I have seen some months ago "Marock", a very good comedy) and she is married to Alexandre Aja, a famous horror movies director (Haute tension). The performance of Omar Sharif as the patriarch is very good., as the performances of Morjana Alaoui, Hiam Abbass and the other actresses in this film.
