La Boîte magique

AKA: The Magic Box

Country: Tunisia

Genre: Drama



A tv network commissions Tunisian filmmaker Raouf to make a film about his childhood relationship with cinema. We learn that Raouf's youth in the small town of Kairouan was marked by a culture clash between the Islamic moralism of his father and the Western attitudes of his dashing uncle Mansour, a traveling projectionist. The title refers to a vintage hand-held "movie" viewer given to Raouf as a gift from his uncle on the day of his circumcision. Compared by some critics to CINEMA PARADISO.
