The Wedding Song

The Wedding Song

A Feature film by Karin Albou

Produced by Gloria Films Production

Release in France : 17/12/2008


    Tunis, 1942. Nour and Myriam, both sixteen years old, have been friends since childhood. They share the same house in a humble neighbourhood where Jews and Muslims live in harmony. Each secretly desires the other’s life: while Nour regrets not going to school like her friend, Myriam dreams of love. She is jealous of Nour’s engagement to her cousin Khaled, who is, to her eyes, a kind of Prince Charming. Unfortunately, Khaled can’t find work. The engagement lasts longer than planned and the perspective of intimacy becomes more remote.
    In November 1942, the German army enters Tunis. Following the French Vichy government’s policy, the Nazis subject the Jewish population to harsh penalties. Tita, Myriam’s mother, no longer has the right to work. Laden with debts, she decides to marry her daughter off to a rich doctor.
    Myriam suddenly sees her dreams of love vanish.
