Movie Info

Two teenage girls who are each facing a crisis set off on an adventure in this comedy-drama from Holland. Desie (Eve van de Wijdeven) is an eighteen-year-old girl from the Netherlands who likes to party and enjoys flirting with guys perhaps a bit too much. Desie's best friend is Dunya (Maryam Hassouni), whose family are expatriates from Morocco; even though they seem to have little in common on the surface, Desie and Dunya are all but inseparable, and Dunya's family are worried that her pal may be a bad influence. Dunya's parents Rachida Iaallala and Mahjoub Benmoussa) have arranged for her to marry a boy in Morocco, though Dunya herself isn't especially happy about the idea. Shortly before Dunya is to be sent to Morocco to meet her new husband, Desie learns that she's pregnant, and she's not sure what to do next. Desie's father abandoned the family years ago and headed to Casablanca; she decides to go find him, and Dunya runs off with her. Dunya and Desie was adapted from a popular Dutch television series, with Eve van de Wijdeven and Maryam Hassouni reprising their roles from TV. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
