Death For Sale
Publicado26 Jun 2012
Tetouan, the Atlantic port city in the north of Morocco. Three young men decide to rob a jewellery store. They are among the hopelessly unemployed street population of Morocco's provincial cities, common thugs in the eyes of many but bound by solidarity and friendship. They see the heist as a means to break out of a cycle of poverty that weighs on their destiny like a life sentence. The noir motifs woven into Death for Sale constitute a poetic matrix through which director Faouzi Bensaïdi draws his incisive and intricate portrait of a city left to fend for itself, torn between smugglers and corrupt officials, and prey to extremism and dejection.
Death For Sale is in competition at the 2012 edition of the Brussels Film Festival.
