Like any groom, Hachemi is anxious about his approaching marriage, but not for the usual reasons. Anonymous alleyway graffiti challenging the manliness of his best friend, Farfat, overshadow the upcoming ceremony. Hachemi's concern is for himself as well as his friend, because he and Farfat share a childhood secret: as apprentices they were both molested by Ameur, the carpenter who trained them. While Farfat makes plans to run away to Tunis, a nervous Hachemi makes a more personal journey of self-discovery.

Summary

Summary

A story of a young wood carver & the torment he experiences on the eve of his wedding night.


Summary

The Tunisian Man of Ashes spotlights Imad Malaal in the role of a terrified bridegroom-to-be. Malaal's aversion to women can be traced back to his youth, when he and his best friend Khaled Ksouri are molested by their male employer. Unable to discuss this violation with their tradition-bound families, Malaal and Ksouri decide to overcome their sexual insecurities by visiting a prostitute. The experience liberates one of the men -- while driving the other to commit murder. Man of Ashes was originally titled Rih Essed . ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
