Review

This is the first film of Nouri Bouzid shot in his hometown, Sfax. The film brought about a revolution in Tunisian films. Nouri Bouzid, who was imprisoned from 1973 to 1979 for the charge of a left-wing movement, boldly challenges Arabian controversial issues; forced manliness, social education system, oppressive family culture, homosexuality and friendship with Jewish people. This upset the conservative groups and media, some of them arguing it was blasphemy and should not be shown. However, the film enjoyed tremendous popularity among the youth, especially over the bigger Hollywood films like and , one from the Rambo series. It also won the grand prize at the Carthage International Film Festival, drawing huge attention worldwide.
