Mimosas Rated 15


Dir. Oliver Laxe. Morocco, 2016. 1h 36m. Arabic/subs. Starring Ahmed Hammoud, Shakib Ben Omar, Said Aagli, Ikram Anzouli, Ahmed El Othemani, Hamid Fardjad.

A dying Sheikh travels across the Moroccan desert with two rogues who promise to deliver his body to his final resting place. A mesmerising drama shot against the backdrop of Morocco’s staggering Atlas Mountains.

'Shot with non-professionals on location in the Atlas mountains, this dreamy, beautifully shot parable has been compared to Aguirre: The Wrath of God' Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

'Mimosas is a languid, lightly experimental affair whose central conceit remains rooted in myth and folklore.' David Jenkins, Little White Lies
