VARIETY - 22/12/2009
An ambitious modernist take on Fyodor Dostoevsky's 1847 short story "A Weak Heart," the visually ravishing second feature from brothers Swel and Imad Noury ("Heaven's Doors") confirms their auteur status. With stylistics trumping emotional involvement, the general public may find it pretentious and baffling, but cinephiles will swoon.
Enfants terribles of contemporary Moroccan cinema, Imad and Swel Noury's interpretation of Dostoevsky's 'A Weak Heart' is set in a war-torn, anonymous city where Said Bey stars as a young man who, superficially, would seem to have it all - a doting fiancee, impending marriage and a great life stretching out ahead of him. But, for some reason, our hero can't cope with this idyllic existance and begins a nightmarish spiral into insanity. Raw, hard-hitting and uncompromising, Noury's screenplay and direction, Bey's mesmerising screen presence and Dostoevsky's thoughtful parable coalesce into a crisp, gripping narrative from two of Morocco's hottest young directors.
