Hedi (Inhebbek Hedi) / Mohamed Ben Attia

Hedi (Inhebbek Hedi) / Mohamed Ben Attia



Winner of the Best First Feature award as well as the Silver Bear for Best Actor (for Majd Mastoura), this is both a touching, provocative portrait of male suffocation in traditional Muslim society and a universal tale of having to choose between love and duty. Hedi is a passive young man listlessly drifting through life while his overbearing mother organizes his marriage, his boss rules his schedule, and his brother dictates his behavior. And then he meets a free-spirited woman who lights a passion inside him, and he finally comes into his own. “Quiet but pungent and featuring vibrant performances, it offers further evidence that the rebirth of Tunisian cinema is underway,” says The Hollywood Reporter.
