Arab Blues

Arab Blues

After years abroad, a woman (Golshifteh Farahani) returns to Tunis with the dream of opening up her own psychotherapy practice, in Manele Labidi’s charming feature debut.


Critical Notes

"Mildly amusing froth, kept all the more buoyant by Farahani's deadpan reactions and immensely watchable face and fine comic timing from the rest of the ensemble..." - Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter
