Several people cross paths in this stylistically distinct Moroccan thriller. A lonely hitman and a lovelorn traffic policewoman keep affecting each other's lives in small, curious ways. The story is playfully told, mixing different cinematic styles in unusual ways. You'll se musical numbers, chase scenes, poetic realism and references to LE SAMOURAÏ. A charming ride through a Casablanca that is very different from when Humphrey Bogart ran a café there.
Plays the role of the assassin Kamel. Born in Morocco in 1967, and studied drama in Paris. Has been directing and acting since 1988 while often writing his own scripts. He prefers a loose filmatic style, as in A THOUSAND MONTHS (shown at BIFF in 2003), where pictures speak louder than words. He regards himself as a loner in the Maroccan film industry, looking for inspiration far beyond his nation's borders.
