A Tale of Love and Desire (2021) (French)



Ahmed, 18, is French of Algerian origin. He grew up in the Parisian suburbs. On the benches of the university, he meets Farah, a young Tunisian full of energy recently arrived from Tunis. While discovering a body of sensual and erotic Arabic literature that he never knew existed, Ahmed falls deeply in love with this girl, and although literally overwhelmed by desire, he will try to resist it.


I saw Leyla Bouzid's debut feature As I Open My Eyes at SIFF in 2017, and really liked it, so when I saw her new film was playing this year I knew I had to see it. From the beginning, when the two main characters got to know each other better in a bookstore after their literature class, I knew I would love this movie. Sexy, romantic, and painfully real in its portrayal of the stress and confusion of romantic relationships and desires as a college student, while also exploring the complexities of various Arab immigrant experiences in Paris. Bouzid continues to be one to watch.


Directed by Tunisian-French directress, Leyla Bouzid, the movie illustrates a love story between two young students, Ahmed (Sami Outalbali), born and raised in the suburbs of Paris, and the bubbly Farah (Zbeida Belhajamor), freshly arriving from Tunis. They met on their first day at The Sorbonne University where they are pursuing a degree in literature. However, when Ahmed discovers a corpus of erotic and sensual Arabic literature, he is torn between his obvious love for Farah, his sexual desires, and his will to repress it.


Very rightly, Sami Outalbali won the prize for Best Male Actor at the Film Festival of Angouleme, while the movie won the award for Best Film. This film is a must watch for French speaking individuals. It is a story that finally shows an accurate and deeper version of Arab people, but is also for anybody who is looking for a story about desire and love.


Ahmed, 18, French of Algerian origin, grew up in the suburbs of Paris. At the university, he meets Farah, a young Tunisian girl, full of energy, who has just arrived in Paris to study literature, like Ahmed. While discovering a corpus of sensual and erotic Arabic literature he never imagined existed, Ahmed falls deeply in love with Farah, and although literally overwhelmed with desire, he tries to resist it.


Idealistic literature student Ahmed (Sami Outalbali), a young man of Algerian heritage, grew up in the suburbs of Paris. Studious and solitary, his world completely changes one day when he meets Farah (Zbeida Belhajamor), an intelligent and attractive young Tunisian girl, who has just arrived at the same university. As she introduces him to an impressive body of erotic Arabic literature that he never imagined existed, Ahmed begins to fall in love with Farah. Although he is increasingly consumed with desire, fuelled by Farah and by poetry, he nevertheless does his best to resist. She may have other ideas, however. Part romantic coming-of-age tale, part paean to the literature of love, A Tale of Love and Desire is an intense, moving portrait of the search for intimacy and companionship. In French and Arabic with English subtitles.

In the late 18th century, a nobleman's prestige depended on the quality of food at his table. At the dawn of the French Revolution, gastronomy remained a prerogative of the aristocracy.

While they both feed a desire for revenge against the Duke, they decided to create the first restaurant in France.
