Marrakech International Film Festival: A week of films, food, friends and fun!

Oh it’s been a fun week with the Marrakech International Film Festival taking place.  I’ve been sneaking out to catch as many films as possible.  Films followed by dinner with friends and vice versa.

Given that I live in Morocco, I was drawn to the Moroccan films, many of which were in the coup du coeur selection, but provided a fascinating look into real Moroccan life.

But I also had the chance to see several of the competition films.  And having seen I have to say my vote goes to The Attack. An amazing film of suspense, deceit, and courage. Having lived in a city during an attack, the emotions portrayed felt real. As did the plot line.

Although I’d also be happy if Horses of God won as well.

And now off to Berlin…

    Did you see that The Attack won, Mandy? I also thought it was the best of the selection I saw, although I did really enjoy watching the Moroccan productions 😉
