Editorial Reviews

Khorma (Amazon.com Exclusive)

Jilani Saadi's debut film is set in the arid Tunisian village of Bizerte. With his red-blond hair, green jacket and quirky personal habits, Khorma is the town's kindly joke - a big, well-meaning lug. His guardian is a crafty old Bou Khaleb, the official announcer of births, deaths, and marriages. When the old man mistakenly announces the death of a woman rather than her daughter's marriage, the film immerses us in the often-hilarious power struggles amongst the clerics of the "religion business".

Arabic with English subtitles.

"Charming yet merciless...Saadi has given us a carnival experience in the time of the annual moussem in Bizerte, tying together Christian and Muslim festival traditions."- Al Jadid

Khorma is the wrong color in a land of dusky-skinned people, so he's considered a reject of society as well as slow of mind (which turns out to be anything but the truth), and is forced to be the personal slave of the man who announces weddings and deaths. When his boss starts mixing up the two, he's quickly retired by the local Muslim establishment and Khorma is hired in his place, the power brokers clearly thinking that he'll be easy to manipulate. Instead, he proves to be a formidable and savvy businessman, well-liked by his peers. The establishment becomes jealous of him and tries to humiliate him and bring him down. But somehow you know that Khorma will prevail in the end. This film reminds me a bit of "Zorba the Greek", with Khorma as Zorba. As a slice of Tunisian life, this is well worth a watch.
