Merzak Allouache – Normal! (2011)


After the riots of December and the first peaceful marches, while “the Arab Spring” begins in Tunisia and Egypt, Fouzi wants his actors together to show them the incomplete editing of the film he made, two years ago, on the disillusionment of a youth seeking to express his artistic ideas. He seeks an alternative view, especially an ending. He relies on the reactions of his actors to invent a new conclusion to his story, in a country suddenly lifted by a wave of protests. A new vision of today’s Algerian youth, in the middle of a new political and artistic questioning.
