Him Himself

Director: Pierre Dawalibi.
A conflict as old as Adam; it is the cause of every war, every greed and every agony; it is the dualism between you and your own self, between your desires and your fears, what you want and what you must. This movie is a reflection for every spectator to identify with, to observe what he/she is really doing to him/herself.

It's set in North Africa or the Middle East in a very conservative society and it must have rocked the boat of the Muslim community when it was released. I've never seen a film set in such a society that dares to talk about sex so openly. In the film, the women of the v...
