MOROCCO , France

A critique of brutal economic liberalism, through the prism of a disenchanted couple’s private tragedy. Six years after Mort à vendre, the Moroccan director focuses on the relationship between Abdelkader and Malika, living in a housing complex ravaged by brutal capitalism. After the husband suffers a violent humiliation, the lovers’ lives are torn apart. Part love story, part social drama, Faouzi Bensaidi’s fourth feature is a powerful fable about human dignity.IN PRESENCE OF ACTRESS NADIA KOUNDANORTH AMERICAN PREMIEREIN COMPÉTITIONWith the support of the Centre Culturel Marocain
