1991 – THE ARAB FRIEND

  • Share

DESCRIZIONE / details

An Italian works for two years in Tunisia surveying ancient engravings and he finds that he has to deal with cultural differences  just as he is about to return to Italy for his mother’s funeral. The fact that he was there only temporarily; the fact that he was alone without an Arab friend or lover calls for an incredible turn of fate and causes a dramatic incident. He is attacked by brigands on horseback during a trip he undertakes by coach and is seriously wounded. His eyes are hit, but this temporary blindness seems to give him new insight: before he dies his Arab friend tells him the story of his life and as he narrates the fantastic tale, rich in mystery, symbolism and sorcery the Italian recognises the fact that he cannot leave Africa.
