ARAB BLUES

MON. MAR 2, 2020.  at GALAXY    1, 4, 6:30 & 9 pm,

After 10 years of living in Paris, Selma has returned to Tunis. Back home, her younger cousin can't figure out why she'd leave the French capital. However, Selma wants to open up a psychotherapy practice in a locale that's not keen on the talking cure, but she also needs to navigate a confusing bureaucratic circus in order to get the right papers to run her practice. On top of all that, a strapping, unbending cop is keeping a close eye on her every move.
Farahani hits all the comic beats and deftly inhabits a character, who, above all, wants to do what's right.  Arab Blues develops with an irresistible charm while not sidestepping bigger questions about both a country and a woman at a crossroads.
