4.0 out of 5 stars Rich, complex study of friendship during war
Like her earlier, excellent 'Le Petite Jerusalem', Karin Albou's story
of two best teen girlfriends suffering through WWII in Tunis is rich
with sensual textures; bodies, fabrics, a powerful sense of place.
Albou is one of those directors who uses silence, a look shared, an
extreme close up to communicate what most filmmakers rely on dialogue

3.0 out of 5 stars A good film but not lesbian?
This was an interesting film about a friendship between two girls during the war. I was disappointed to discover, however, that the relationship between the two girls was a platonic one. Pecaddillo Pictures make lesbian and gay movies so this was a bit misleading. A real shame, because it had the potential to be more than 3 stars.

This review is from: The Wedding Song [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
Like her earlier, excellent 'Le Petite Jerusalem', Karin Albou's story
of two best teen girlfriends suffering through WWII in Tunis is rich
with sensual textures; bodies, fabrics, a powerful sense of place.
Albou is one of those directors who uses silence, a look shared, an
extreme close up to communicate what most filmmakers rely on dialogue
to say.

One girl is Jewish, the other Muslim. Both dream of happy marriages in
societies and religious cultures that keep women as objects used by
men, while both religious groups are used as puppets and victims used
by the Nazi occupiers - if in very different ways.

A deceptively complex film, this story of friendship touches on war,
religion, class politics, race, and sexual roles. If I found it a touch
less successful than her last film, it may be because Albou was being so
ambitious, trying to cover so much ground in 100 minutes.
But I'll take that kind of ambition in an artist anytime.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING FILM!, 9 May 2011
This review is from: The Wedding Song [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
This film is beyond amazing..being half Tunisian myself i did not realise the friendship between the muslims and the jews was so close. The parody of the film is that it is 1942 and the jews are the targets of the german narzis. This film really illustrates how much things have changed since then and why we have some of the problems today within the world. Its a beautiful film...and i have pre-ordered it for the last month to watch in English as i have only seen in French/Arabic. I can't wait to see it in English..its one of the BEST films about! LOVE IT!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wedding Song [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
It is a beautiful film about an age when women starts to convince God to make them the help in His Own Image and Likeness. It is also a story of a hen ( Jesus Christ ) who protects her golden chicken ( his disciples ).
