Love, time and romantic rivalries make trouble for two friends in this offbeat drama from directors Imad Noury and Swel Noury. In the future, most of the world is gripped in a global war and computers have been outlawed. X (Said Bey) and Ney (Fehd Benchemsi) are close friends who work together at the Ministry of War in a nameless land by the ocean. They also share a small apartment, and Ney has long felt a vague attraction to X, though he's never spoken of it. X, however, has fallen in love with Lili (Audrey Marnay), a beautiful woman who works as a nightclub performer. X has asked Lili to marry him, and taken several weeks off from work to spend time wither her; however, lots of paperwork has accumulated in his absence at work, and he begins gulping coffee and taking speed as he struggles to get caught up. When X introduces Lili to his roommate, Ney finds he's attracted to both Lily and X, making his situation especially complicated, while stress and lack of sleep nudge X into mental instability. The Man Who Sold The World was freely adapted from a short story by Fyodor Dostoevsky; the film was an official selection at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival.
