    • Synopsis
    • “ This picture is beautifully scored and nicely played , with an undemonstrative feel for the rhythms of marital and blood relationships.” After a Paris love affair, Jamil returns to Tunis to work in Tarek’s bookstore Leila, Tarek’s wife enlivens the business with her arabian songs and her sensous appearance. She dreams of a professional singing career. Her mother Aicha misses her husband…The four characters are balancing between their cherished pasts and the longings and their futures. It is not a series of dramatic events, but the everyday ups and downs that make the theme of a minimalist film universally recognisable.
