Tetouan, a Moroccan port city is permanently under a low, heavy sky. Three friends, small time crooks, decide to rob the town’s biggest jewelry store to escape from a hopeless future. Shot by Elia Suleiman’s regular cinematographer, Marc-André Batigne this very stylised urban thriller captures the action in a series of complex camera movements and crane shots, maintaining the integrity of the real-world locations while adding a sufficient level of suspense.
The film was selected as Best International Feature Film at the 85th Academy Awards.
