“Culture-clash comedy … a dose of absurdity and some gentle social commentary”. Eye for Film
Golshifteh Farahani stars as radiant yet tough Selma, a Tunis-born psychoanalyst who, having lived in Paris since age ten, has returned to Tunisia to set up a practice in a country where people habitually talk like crazy but not to mental health professionals. Via a colourful array of characters still finding their bearings post-Arab Spring, first-time writer-director Manele Labidi packs in a lot of affectionate observations, all set to an original retro-jazzy electric guitar-based score.
