Play In the Shade

Joue à l’ombre

Directed by Mohamed Lakhdar Tati
Algeria, France, 2008


To master a town is to know it, its street names, its shortcuts, knowing its limits and how to get around them, to miss nothing in a neighbourhood. The lilt of a phrase or the simplicity of a house still astonish and become poetry.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
