Overview

Paris, 1993. 17-year-old Selma lives in a bourgeois and secular Berber family. When she meets Julien, a provocative young man, she realizes for the first time how the heavy rules of patriarchy affect her intimacy. As she faces her own fears to explore the power and dangers of her desire, her family crumbles and the terror of fundamentalism emerges in her country of origin. Selma must fight back to reclaim her body and become a free woman.

Review

This film is Kamir Aïnouz’s debut work. Zoé Adjani, the niece of Algerian-French actor, Isabelle Adjani, plays the main character Selma. The story is set in France in the 1990s, Selma, from an Algerian bourgeois family, fights for her freedom from the patriarchal family background. Although Selma was raised in France, she suffers from discrimination against aliens and struggles between a conservative Algerian family and an open French society. The film delicately portrays an emotional journey that can be experienced by a young woman when she experiences sex for the first time in a plot of personal growth. Women’s sexual awareness can be open or not open depending on the situation. How will Selma overcome the oppression she receives when her choice is not respected? Kamir Aïnouz delivers the message that gaining gender identity should be based on a strong self with self-independency. Selma visits her origin country for the first time and searches for her roots and meaning of life. She grows stronger and realizes being solid is not an option but a must. Selma can remain in true freedom when she realizes that it is part of life. (KWAK Saejeong)
