The Blue Caftan
A hugely compassionate and emotionally satisfying movie. ★★★★ ” The Guardian
Mina (Lubna Azabal) and her husband Halim (Saleh Bakri) run a small business making and selling bespoke caftans in one of Morocco’s oldest medinas. Halim is a master of his trade, and Mina a canny saleswoman, though their wares don’t come cheap and traditional dress is falling out of favour.
Woven with exquisite care, Maryam Touzani’s Cannes Un Certain Regard winning drama reveals a beautiful love triangle exploring mortality and sexuality in a small Moroccan town. Touzani presents a complex marriage with tenderness and grace in a sincere and superbly performed film that unfolds in unexpected and heartening ways.
