    [font=Century Gothic]"Changing Times" starts with Antoine(Gerard Depardieu) arriving in Tangiers to oversee the building of a broadcast facility of a moderate Muslim satellite network. He is also in town to see his old flame, Cecile(Catherine Deneuve), who he has not seen in more than thirty years and still pines for. Cecile who works as a DJ for a radio station has moved on and is now married to Nathan(Gilbert Melki), a doctor. Her grown son, Sami(Malik Zidi), has just arrived from Paris along with his girlfriend, Nadia(Lubna Azabal), and her son, Said(Idir Elomri). Sami goes off to have sex with his old lover, Bilal(Nadem Rachati), a caretaker, while Nadia seeks to repair the rift between her and her estranged twin sister, Aisha(Lubna Azabal).[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Changing Times" is an interesting but unfocused movie about a postcolonialist world where there is less separating Eastern and Western cultures as time goes on. For example, Aisha is a devout Muslim but works at a McDonald's. But it is very hard to take one's eyes off the two stars(who still have it after all of these years) and when Deneuve and Depardieu are not onscreen, their presence is deeply missed.[/font]

    A bit of an emotional puzzle but I really enjoyed it. The ending was quite sweet.

    A moderately poignant patchwork.
