Lost in the Narrative
26 March 2019 | by larrys3See all my reviews

Unfortunately, I got lost in the narrative of this Moroccan film, with its rather confusing flashbacks and numerous characters and themes. The movie directed by Nabil Ayouch and co-written by Ayouch and Maryam Touzani (who also stars in the film), centers on how 5 main characters try to find their own paths amidst the upheavals going on in their country regarding a more modern nation vs. the pushback of those who want a stricter religious state.

I might also say the English subtitles here were quite small and I had to watch pretty much the entire movie in zoom mode, which didn't make for the greatest viewing experience.

Overall, although there are genuine moments in the movie with its characters longing for a freer life, the film itself never really congealed into as much of a powerful drama as it might have, as I see it.
