Like a spirit which refuses to die, Casablanca’s old Medina, incarnated by a voice, leads us to its inhabitants. Taken in the midst of everyday life, the stories of their lives reveal a truly universal human tragedy, where the poetry of drama is always appreciated. Rejection, injustice, survival, muddling through since the dawn of time – all this is somehow in all of them or never far away. But there is something else: the beauty, the poetry of the place, the tremendous energy, joy and passion for life!
This film is a story, one of many possible stories about the Medina, a way to rub recent social history and make it into cinema.
