Mehdi Ben Attia
Feature Film | Tunisia | 2010 | 93 min.
It's hard to keep a secret, especially when you live with your mother. Malik had been enjoying life in France, working as an architect and casually hooking up with other men. But when he returns to his mother in Tunisia after his father's death, the lie about his sexuality becomes harder to keep. An ill-timed tryst with attractive handyman Bilal ends terribly for Malik, who is finally discovered by his mother. Class struggle and culture clash are handled with nuance, sensitivity and affirmation.
