Salvation Army (2013)

Sobre o filme

Abdellah Taïa, the first Moroccan and Arab writer to openly come out about his homosexuality, tells his life story in two parts. In Casablanca, the young Abdellah spends his days at home, with a difficult relationship with his father. In the city streets, he has occasional sexual encounters with men. During a holiday, his older and venerated brother Slimane abandons him. Ten years later, Abdellah lives with his Swiss lover, Jean. He leaves Morocco and goes to Geneva, where he decides to break up and to start a new life alone. He takes shelter in a house of the Salvation Army, where a Moroccan man sings a song of his idol Abdel Halim Hafez for him.
