Product Description

Masquerades (Mascarades) - Amazon.com Exclusive

After working for much of his life as a gardener in his dusty Algerian village, Mounir dreams of improving his family's fortune and gaining a measure of respect by marrying off his narcoleptic sister, Rym, to a "real gentleman." However, Rym has other plans—she dreams of marrying Mounir's best friend, Khliffa, who has secretly courted her for years.

When Mounir lashes out at village gossip with a fib that he has promised Rym to a wealthy outsider, she comes out of her sleepy stupor to embrace the rumor and press her real betrothed into action. Beautifully brought to life by a memorable cast—including director Lyes Salem as the cocky but compassionate bumbler Mounir—this heartfelt comedy suggests that when dreams become reality, it's time to wake up.

"Undoubtedly, Masquerades marks [director Lyes] Salem out as a talent we'll certainly be seeing more of; and if his next work is as genial as this, the pleasure will be all ours."
-Screen Daily

Review

Lively ethnic laffer deftly tosses matrimony, celebrity and narcolepsy into a potent brew with international appeal. A likable cast, a witty star turn by [director Lyes] Salem, faultless staging and a neatly inflected pace contribute to a modest but sparkling romp... --Variety

Undoubtedly, Masquerades marks [director Lyes] Salem out as a talent we'll certainly be seeing more of; and if his next work is as genial as this, the pleasure will be all ours. --Screen Daily

Masquerades is the story of the complex struggle between tradition and change in modern day Algeria. Mounir, played by director Lyes Salem, is a gardener with a narcoleptic sister Rym, whom he fears will never marry. Mounir finds her a wealthy suitor, but she has ideas of her own; she and Khliffa, the eccentric town artist, are madly in love. What ensues is absolute chaos: sandstorms, car chases, scandals, and weddings, with a narcoleptic in the mix, all captured with beautiful cinematography and accompanied by vibrant music. --Tribeca Film Blog
