Critic Reviews for Viva Laldjerie
One of those absorbing movies that's completely in touch with the lives it portrays.
Thin but engaging. If you like your travelogue with a bit of story tossed in, it could be just the ticket.

Audience Reviews for Viva Laldjerie
An appealing movie that centralizes upon the life of an elderly widow living in an apartment with her daughter in Algiers. Years before, Mrs. Sandjak once was Papicha, a former dancer in a club who left the career behind then to raise her young daughter, Goucem. Years later, she lives with the memory of once having fame, and still harbors hope that one day she will be able to go back to it. As an adult, Goucem works in a photo shop and hopes that her married lover will divorce his wife to marry her. She bonds with the prostitute next door, Fifi (who holds no shame in the choices that she has made). Great cast- Lubna Azabel, Biyouna, Nadia Kaci, Lynda Harchaoui, and Akim Isker. Worthy!
Algiers. Funamentalism. Oppression. 2003. Nice cinematography, but little else to make me want to see it again.
