Though adapted from an autobiography by a Moroccan writer, this is very
much a French film, and quite a good one IMO. This is a gay-themed
movies for grown ups. It's a film that transcends its deceptively
simple storyline and it packs a wallop.
It's difficult to summarize this movie without making it sound like
less than it is. It's a coming of age movie, yes, but that's just the
framework for some very unusual fare.
We first meet Abdellah as a young teenager. He's at the age when it's
becoming inappropriate for him to hang with his sisters and mother, and
time to be with the men, though his family doesn't see him as a man
Nevertheless, he's already sexually active with adult men in his
Casablanca neighborhood. Though family life is a little grim, his
father seems to know that his son is an object of desire and that he
has crushes. Interestingly, this doesn't seem to be a big deal.
Midway the film jumps ahead to show Abdellah in very different
circumstances leading a very different life. It's an abrupt change, one
that startles. But it's the latter part of the movie that gives it its
heft. It may be a simple story line, but it's a weighty theme.
It's worth noting that the only time we see Abdellah smile in the movie
is when he is young during an encounter with a man who is perhaps six
or seven years his senior. We see an exchange of emotion between two
equals, despite their age difference. It's a brief scene, and neither
the partner nor that feeling is shown again. I'm noting this scene
because if you see the movie, you may need to be reminded that there
was once a smile....
Lest you be put off by the title, a Salvation Army facility is seen
briefly, but the title is a metaphor.
