The past strikes again!
8 December 2004 | by szisomanSee all my reviews

Not as grand as the superb silences of the palace but not bad at all. Aicha takes her autistic son & 2 daughters back to the island of djerba as her marriage is suffering. There the women of djerba make rugs & carpets most of the year & then their husbands come for one month to collect them & head back to their bazaar shops in tunisia the capital, hence the name, season of men. Moufida does repeat here the haunting past with secrets like she did in silences of the palace. I couldn't sympathies with hend sabri's Emna,her character was a bit off putting unlike her sister meriem, who ghalya ben ali played the part quite well, perhaps it was the role but the one who really did shine & is a promising talent is the young meriem, Azza baaziz, who was able to convey her emotions & suffering better than anyone else in the film in my opinion. Moufida tlatli seems to have found another young promising talent in her just like she did with Hend sabri in the silences of the palace ten years ago. This film will be enjoyed by those who liked silences even if not in the same level of grandeur, this one is about breaking tradition, confronting your past & finding yourself.
