Meanwhile, Nour's fiancé, Khaled (Najib Oudghiri), whose wedding is contingent on finding a job, entertains thoughts of becoming a functionary in the Nazi propaganda machine.

    The German occupation of Tunisia forms the backdrop for this gritty look at Arab-Jewish relations on a microscopic scale. Two families that live in the same compound try to deal with the harsh realities of war, testing friendships. Excellent, sensitive telling, terrific acting and unrelenting tension made this a most interesting film. The collaboration between the Germans, the French, and the native Arabs, was an aspect of the war that this viewer had been unaware of. No longer.

    There's a lot going on in this film. Perhaps, too much in this story of the Nazi occupation of Tunis in 1942. The friendship of a Jewish and Muslim girl is tested against the actions of their parents and the occupiers. The preparation for marriage scene, Oriental style, is painful to watch and lasts too long. However, this is a very fine film, and should be seen by all who have an interest in the terrible times of World War II.
