DISCOVERY

A TALE OF LOVE AND DESIRE (N/C 15)
UNE HISTORIE D’AMOUR ET DE DESIR

WATCH THE TRAILER

Ahmed (Sami Outabali), an 18-year-old French-Algerian university student is bright, reserved, incredibly indecisive and, we find out eventually, has never had sex. Whether he wants to or not is the question at the heart of Tunisian writer-director Leyla Bouzid’s languorous and subtly erotic coming-of-age film.

At university, Ahmed meets Farah, a young Tunisian girl full of energy, who has just arrived in Paris. While discovering a collection of sensual and erotic Arab literature he never imagined existed, Ahmed falls head over heels in love with Farah, and although literally overwhelmed with desire, he will try to resist it.

Director: Leyla Bouzid
Cast: Sami Outalbali, Zbeida Belhajamor, Diong Keba-Tacu, Aurelia Petit, Mahia Zrouki, Bellamine Abdelmalek, Mathilde La Musse,

“Bouzid illustrates the relationship between literature and love in refreshing ways.”
