Andalusia, my love ! by Mohamed Nadif
Selected for « Coup de cœur » in Marrakech International Film Festival
In the presence of director Mohamed Nadif.
Said and Amin, are two young students from Casablanca who dream of Europe. They take on an incredible adventure that ends in a small village, in the North of Morocco. With the help of an unusual teacher, obsessed with Andalusia and working in human and good trafficking, they manage to get a small boat to take them to the European shores. Fate takes Amin to end up on the shore of the village while Said ends up on a Spanish shore. However while Andalusia looks strange to Said, Amin observes in his turn strange phenomena in the Moroccan village… A comedy filled with self mockery that addresses the dramatic subject of illegal immigration in a caustic tone that combines both compassion and absurdity together.
