Movie Info

Casablanca. Vibrant and rough, inviting yet unforgiving. Four souls in search of truth. Hakim, living in the conservative medina, dreams of being a rock star. Salima, on the verge of resignation, struggles to free herself from a society that wants to define her. Joe, a Jewish restaurant owner, chooses to live in the Casablanca he fantasizes about, blurring his reality. Inès, young and rich, is torn between tradition and modernity as she deals with her sexual awakening.... More than three decades earlier, a passionate teacher in the Atlas Mountains is put to silence.... Through the echo of his shattered dreams, their disillusions embody the sparks that will light up the city in flames.

Critic Reviews for Razzia

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

"Razzia" is fatally crippled by a conceit that flattens the characters to serve an argument, like bullet points in a sweeping editorial about the current state of Morocco.

Top Critic

Ayouch pointlessly, gracelessly entwines the fates of five thinly sketched types ... whose aimless arcs don't so much climatically intersect as reach the same Hail Mary non-ending simultaneously.

Top Critic

A sprawling cri de coeur set in the heart of modern-day Casablanca, Nabil Ayouch's Razzia is an intense network narrative that nearly collapses under the weight of its own ambitions.

The multiple threads can be frustrating and the link between past and present is weak, but the film's searing conclusion finally unites the characters at an explosive party.

An ambitious misfire...

September 23, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A complex and involving compound portrait of the upheaval caused by creeping theocracy and ingrained attitudes.
