France-Algeria (2006)
Audio: French/Japanese simultaneous translation

97 min.

Kamel returns to Algeria following a stay in France to find a country that he no longer recognises. He witnesses gangs of youths terrorising local villagers in an attempt to impose their own beliefs and ideals; while at the same time he watches as his old friend Bouzid’s sister is ostracised by her husband and family, all for revealing a desire to sing American jazz and cabaret. The two exiles find themselves drawn to each other as the surrounding culture and social prejudices threaten to drive them from their homeland.
