Morocco 2022, 123 mins (Dir. Mariam Touzani) starring Lubna Azabal, Saleh Bakri and Ayoub Missioui.

A middle-aged tailor and his wife find their relationship challenged by the arrival of a handsome new apprentice. Halim and Mina run a traditional kaftan store in one of Morocco’s oldest medinas and, to keep up with demanding customers, they hire a talented young man as an apprentice. Slowly Mina realises how much her husband is moved by his presence. A love story shaped by surprising contours, the film surveys the human hidden heart with compassion and grace. The beautiful photography captures the mood of the film. Morocco official entry for best international feature film for Academy Awards 2023.
