Product Description

What a Wonderful World (Amazon.com Exclusive)

Souad is a prostitute whose best friend is Kenza, a tough traffic cop. Kamel is a stony-eyed contract killer who receives his hit orders via the Internet; he is also Souad's favorite customer. When Kenza falls in love with Kamel, the two begin a bizarre courtship doomed by their disparate lines of work, and a persistent cyber-snooping hacker who stumbles upon the site where Kamel receives his murderous contracts.

Moroccan actor-director Faouzi Bensaïdi's promiscuously stylish film is a new vision of an old culture, unveiling an uncommon Casablanca caught in a world wide web of associations and consequences.

"'What a Wonderful World' fascinates on a scene-by-scene basis, and is one of the most visually inventive films in recent memory." –Cinemattraction

"Set in a contemporary Casablanca of vast contrasts, tale of a hit man falling for a traffic cop's voice covers the genre map while never taking itself too seriously, allowing for subtle comments on love, disillusion and today's Morocco to slip in almost without noticing." –TimeOut London

What a Wonderful World is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Arabic with English subtitles.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Set in a contemporary Casablanca of vast contrasts, tale of a hit man falling for a traffic cop's voice covers the genre map while never taking itself too seriously, allowing for subtle comments on love, disillusion and today's Morocco to slip in almost without noticing. --Variety

What a Wonderful World fascinates on a scene-by-scene basis, and is one of the most visually inventive films in recent memory. --Cinemattraction

Bensaidi's dazzlingly imaginative second feature... again finds him deploying film s full resources to tell his story in a fresh, arresting and exhilarating cinematic way. --TimeOut London

I love this movie. Haven't had a chance to watch the copy I bought yet but I've watched it before. It's different then other films in the way it goes about telling it's story and etc, but it's a good film and people who appreciate movies as an art form or movies that are unique, will like it :)

Also, though I wasn't a fan of the cover art of the move, I do love that it comes with a little booklet inside the DVD case, that has a little synopsis of about 9-10 other foreign films from around the globe that came out the same year as this film.
