Audience Member This film was billed to me as 'Jewish Romeo and Arab Juliet in Morocco.' It's not, But it is a cool coming-of-age drama that deals with two-faced family life and social conflicts. While it is a teen movie, it's much more intelligence and sophisticated that the teen comedy-romance crap churned out by Hollywood. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Au contraire des critiques que j'ai pu lire sur ce film, je trouve qu'il représente tout à fait (mais alors tout à fait tout à fait) la jeunesse dorée marocaine. J'y ai reconnu certaines de mes cousins/cousines ou ce qu'ils/elles risquent de devenir d'ici un an ou deux. La façon de parler en s'attendant à une réponse immédiate, le fait qu'on ne leur refuse rien ou pas grand chose,... Les personnages son attachants "malgré" ce réalisme, un peu comme de vrais marocains quoi. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Bon c'est pas un film exceptionnel en soi mais j'ai adorE la pertinence du reflet de la jeunesse doree marocaine...etant moi-meme semi marocaine j'ai souri pas mal de fois dvt les repliques dites en arabe :) les bonnes qui dansent avec Rita ds la cuisine, l'humour et les reves d'occident de ces jeunes, tout cela je l'ai deja vu de mes propres yeux et j'en ai apprecie la restitution ! Sinon j'ai bien aime la façon dont est captee la lumiere, on reconnait bien la le Maroc comme j'ai pu le voir. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member muslim girl loves jewish boy in casablanca.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member The most comon critic about this movie is that it's not representative of the majority of the moroccan youth!!! true, but so what? The tiny part of the moroccan youth Laila Marrakchi is willing to represent in her movie is very well depicted, the slang the acent, the manners, the complex relation with the house employees etc... Its a very well done movie ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Read all reviews
