A Summer in La Goulette

1996 NR

Set in 1967 Tunis, this tender comedy follows three teenage girls from different faiths who make a pact to lose their virginity, causing a rift between their fathers, who had been best friends. As the summer wears on, will the families find a way to tolerate one another's differences and forgive? This provocative look at sex, religion and tradition in tense and changing times stars Sonia Mankaï, Ava Cohen-Jonathan and Sarah Pariente.
