Die Welt

Post Jasmine Revolution blues with a punch and a Tarantino-esque touch.

Young Abdallah preaches the virtues of serious political cinema against cheap US blockbusters in the video store where he works but constantly dreams of leaving Tunis. After a one night stand with a Dutch woman he can almost foresee his future in prosperous Europe. Blending documentary and fiction, handheld realism and witty in-your-face monologues, this is a bittersweet tale of self discovery and unfulfilled hopes set in a post-revolutionary country trapped between a dark past and a fragile future.
