“This Tunisian satire has the cleverest movie plot of 2020 … political and playful, romantic and ironic.” – Roger Moore, Movie Nation 

Sam Ali, a young sensitive and impulsive Syrian, left his country for Lebanon to escape the war. To be able to travel to Europe and live with the love of his life, he accepts having his back tattooed by one of the world’s most sulfurous contemporary artists. Turning his own body into a prestigious piece of art, Sam will come to realize that his decision might actually mean anything but freedom. Writer/director Kaouther Ben Hania (Beauty and the Dogs) offers a ferociously satirical look at politics, class and art filtered through a gripping story of a Faustian pact between the privileged and the damned, propelled by an excellent cast including Yahya Mahayni, Koen De Bouw and Monica Bellucci. (Dir. by Kaouther Ben Hania, 2020, Tunisia/France, in Arabic/English/French/Flemish with English subtitles, 104 mins., Not Rated)
