    Taste of Cement


    I don't know how to feel about this one.
    I was totally confused by the non-coherent elements of the film.
    - The poetic voice over + The Red Crescent footage.
    - The cold dead neutral description of the destruction/construction duality.

    The former made it sound like he was provoking some emotional reaction from the spectator (which I didn't like at all)
    The latter looked like it had enough guts to put into perspective the absurdity of human effort, voiding both…

    Vent du nord - شرش


    I usually hate every film that tries to pick up on the spectators' opinions about things that rudely (All the preachy details: Religion, Advertising for Tunisia as a touristic destination). However, I don't really know, maybe the fact that this one is deeply merged in its socio-political aspect makes the whole thing fairly bearable, and maybe the dominant technical masterfulness combined with the sincerity of almost all situations came down to conceive considerably mature film.
