True that, how have I missed to mention that the scene at the roof was one of the strongest points in the movie!,, and somehow that's what adds to Mao's and Rita's excellent career ahead of them! I really wanted to see the producer unleash more of these young actor's potentials!.. maybe in her next film, it's a start.
wait a sec.. the guy who plays mao is in indigenes??? what's his name? i think the film is not something most of the chaab can relate to, but just like those two little street boys at the very beginning admired the rich kids and wished they could live it up with what they thought was "style", so other poor kids will too, and that's probably what concerns a lot of parents. but there's still a bit of a moral to the story - even these rich kids have their share of crises and misery - maybe not in a material sense like so many others of the chaab, but emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, they have their own miseries to struggle with. i felt sorry for rita even though she acted like a spoiled bitch. she's so neglected by her own family, who love mao to death but treat her almost like she doesn't exist - until she does something they really disapproved of, then wham, all of a sudden they try to control her. it's such a backward f'ed up way of treating your child. in the end, i think only 2 people really understood her: the old maid, and her brother mao. that ending scene where he struggles to hug her is so poignant - he knew all along that she was in crisis mode, but he didn't always know how best to reach out to her or express his love and concern, and she didn't know how to accept it. somehow it took that moment of grief and pain for the two of them to connect, and it is so brief and painful that you can't help but sympathize.
Yes the movie was weak, and like they say in Casa fiha "La3yaqa" bezzaf. Except my man Mao, he's the only character with style, charisma and prowess. Good luck for him in Debouze Indigenes!

That is a very sick movie!!! Yes it's a reflection of what is happening in certain families belonging to a certain categorie BUT is this how we gonna solve our problems? by using bad words on tv and showing that "qellate l7ya" to everyone? I'm aware that we have so many problems that we need to solve in Morocco but a mistake can never be corrected with another mistake!! I'm old fashioned I know :) p.s: this is not called freedom of expression or speech, it's simply called qallate l7ya w l3effa!!!
