With two years of university under his belt, but very little common sense, Zizou leaves his Saharan village and finds work in the city of Tunis, installing satellite dishes alongside a colorful cast of characters. The job takes him to every part of the city, introducing him to residents ranging from supporters of the regime and underground rebels to a ravishing beauty being held captive by the mafia. When Zizou decides to attempt a rescue of his beloved, he gets much more than he bargained for.

The guileless protagonist Aziz (aka Zizou) stumbles between revolutionary factions and manipulators after moving to Tunisia to find work just before the 2011 Arab Spring uprising. A chance encounter with an imprisoned young woman provides a thin plot thread that I suppose parallels the political upheaval at the end.

That was so funny! Sweet and light, absurd, completely outside of the real world. Like a fairy tale.

Very slow.
