Review

Homeless and pregnant, Samia wanders the streets of Morocco for work and a place to sleep, but there is no place for her in Casablanca. Abla, a widowed baker with an eight-year-old daughter named Warda, initially refuses Samia, like other shopkeepers. But upon seeing Samia spend a night in front of her house, Abla ends up taking her in. Staying with Abla, Samia creates new menu items for her, and Abla’s bakery becomes popular in the neighborhood. One day, Samia finds a cassette tape of dance music and plays it for Abla, who hears the music and angrily yells at Samia to turn it off-it was a song that Abla’s dead husband loved. But Samia doesn’t turn off the music, and Abla gradually begins to dance to it as well. Morocco’s Maryam TOUZANI uses her debut film to take a delicate look at the friendship between two women and also at the restoration of the protagonist’s femininity. Since its screening in the Un Certain Regard section at the Cannes Film Festival, ''Adam'' has been a recipient of awards from various film festivals. [CHUN Jinsu]
