    This  internationally acclaimed, warm and entertaining family drama tells the story of Slimane, a sixty-something North African immigrant who has just been laid off after a lifetime's toil at a shipyard in the French Mediterranean port of Sète.

    Against considerable odds, Slimane determines to realise his long-held dream of opening a couscous restaurant, but to do so must rally the support of his extended family, including his ex-wife, children, mistress and her hot-headed daughter.

    Eventually, the make-or-break opening night arrives and the scene is set for a dramatic and nail-bitingly tense finalé...

    Featuring some of the most mouthwatering scenes of food and feasting ever committed to celluloid, this superbly performed, intimate and vividly realised film is an engrossing tale of hope, cultural identity and familial rivalries
