Film on Friday: “Zizou” (Arabic/French w/ Eng. subtitles)

Férid Boughedir’s film “Zizou” is a Tunisian comedy about love, revolution, and everyday life. In Boughedir’s tale, an unlikely hero, young college graduate Aziz, nicknamed “Zizou,” leaves his village on the border of Sahara for the capital in quest of a job. After he becomes a satellite-dish installer, interacting with people from all walks of life, he falls madly in love with a young woman who has ties to a mafia group working closely with the governmental regime. His quest to set her free becomes his reason for living, and he proceeds unconsciously into the growing tide of a revolution about to wash over Tunisia.
