A Tale of Love and Desire

1h 42m Drama, Romance 2021

Ahmed, an 18-year old Frenchman of Algerian origin, meets Farah, a young Tunisian girl. He discovers a collection of sensual and erotic Arab literature and falls in love with Farah and he tries to resist the desire.

“A film that celebrates the joy and fears associated with youthful lust, while exploring ideas of internal cultural conflict, without making it feel tacky or like a diatribe.” ~Amber Wilkinson, EyeForFilm

“Has plenty to say about how a generation of young French men from North African Muslim backgrounds deal with issues of national identity, personal ethics and sexual politics. While these topics will speak most directly to French audiences, Bouzid’s film is also warm, passionate and sexy in a well-read kind of way.” ~Lee Marshall, Screen Daily
