Sète, 1994. Amin, aspired screenwriter established in Paris comes back to his hometown to meet his family and childhood friends. Accompanied by his cousin Tony and his best friend Ophélie, Amin spends his time between his parents’ Turkish restaurant, bars and the beach – always full of young women on holidays. Fascinated by the feminine figures around him Amin stays discreet and contemplates these summer mermaids while his cousin throws himself in the pleasures of the flesh. But when comes a time to love only faith – mektoub – can decide. (Loose translation, mk2)

A 90s summer-romance pastoral of epic length and sexiness, marinaded in sunshine. – The Guardian
