Omar Gatlato

Directed by Merzak Allouache
Algeria, 1976
Comedy, Drama

Synopsis

A watershed film, Omar Gatlato held a mirror up to Algerian male culture and the mirror cracked. The title refers to the expression “gatlato al-rujula,” or, roughly, “machismo killed him” and the film’s mordant insights into male posturing and alienation in Algerian society animate this tale.
