Goodbye Morocco
NADIR MOKNÈCHE
France, Belgium, 2012, 102 minutes, 35mm, Color, official site

Dounia, a Moroccan woman, and Dimitri, her Spanish lover, are overseeing the building of a villa in Casablanca when the excavations uncover ancient Christian ruins beneath the worksite. Seduced by the promise of easy money, they decide to cash in on the find without informing the owner of the land. For Dounia, this windfall represents the solution to all her troubles – she wants to regain custody of her young son, leave Morocco and live happily ever after. When a tragic accident threatens her success, she abandons her scruples in her selfish attempt to remodel herself. Known for his courage in dealing with sensitive social issues, here director Nadir Moknèche moves into the territory of the dark thriller, harnessing a true story to dramatise the self-destructive desperation of those who are disillusioned with life in North Africa. —Doha Film Institute

    Went last night. Nearly full house. Filmed in and around Tangier and not Casablanca. Dimitri is not Spanish but Eastern European mix and I think Dounia morally corrupt even prior to the discovery of the Christian catacombs. Plight of undocumented workers and homosexuals in Morocco also addressed. On the lunch side, Arucola, moderate-priced Italian with sidewalk café component, is just south of the theater and American City Diner is next door. The Avalon Theatre Café in the building has snacks, pastries and sandwiches.
