Arab Blues

Un Divan à Tunis

(N/C 12+)

Dir: Manele Labidi

Golshifteh Farahani stars as radiant yet tough Selma, a Tunis-born psychoanalyst who, having lived in Paris since age 10, has returned to Tunisia to set up a practice in a country where people habitually talk like crazy but not to
mental health professionals. Via a colourful array of characters still getting their bearings post-Arab Spring, first-time writer-director Manele Labidi packs a lot of affectionate observations, all set to an original retro-jazzy electric guitar-based score.

“Culture-clash comedy… a dose of absurdity and some gentle social commentary.”  – Eye for Film –
