Our take

Discovered in Abdellatif Kechiche’s The Secret of the Grain, actor Hafsia Herzi went behind and in front of the camera for her first feature—and what a debut! An unabashed and intimate reflection on love and desire told from a woman’s perspective, which pulsates with splendid, spontaneous vitality.
