Movie Info

Veteran filmmaker Andre Techine takes DV camera in hand and directs this gritty romantic drama about a Moroccan truck driver and the girl he loves. Serge hauls goods -- both legal and illegal -- from North Africa to Spain. Spent mostly on the road, on ferries, or in customs offices, his life is highly structured, having to hand the right forms and bribes to customs officials and deliver goods to the proper locations. His personal life is less ordered. He is fatally attracted to Sarah, a beautiful Moroccan Jew who is dealing with the recent death of her mother and the arrival of her brother who wants her to return to Canada with him. Desperate to see her once again, Serge strikes a deal with a young lad named Said. If Said arranges a meeting between him and Sarah, then Serge will smuggle Said across the border into Europe. This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
