What I'm Watching #263
The string is about a young man who is called back to home in Tunisia upon the death of his father, a member of the Arab bourgeoisie. His mother, a French born Catholic whack-job proceeds to make his life a hellish affair as he is betrothed to marry the recently widowed slut daughter of close family friends while taking up a torrid love affair with the gardener (him not her). We've seen this plot a thousand times!--well, okay, not this exact plot. But as a whole the movie breaks no new ground, and in spite of the occasional eye candy, remained either too emotionally unstable for me to form a bond to. In the end, was glad to cut "the string" on this one.
