Overview

An attractive widow just edging into middle age begins to explore a new side of her personality once she's on her own in this drama from Tunisia. After the death of her husband, Lilia (Hiam Abbass) finds herself at a loss for what to do with her life. Her teenage daughter, Salma (Hend El Fahem), is just old enough to be developing a life of her own, and is too busy with school and her friends to spend much time with her mother. Lilia fills the days by watching television and obsessively cleaning her home, but she feels lonely and out of sorts. Lilia begins to suspect that Salma is dating an older man, and one evening, after Salma's dancing class, she spies her leaving with a musician named Chokri (Maher Kamoun). Lilia discovers that Chokri performs at a nightclub featuring a troupe of belly dancers, and she goes to the club one night to confront him. Lilia is initially embarrassed by the boisterous atmosphere of the cabaret and the scanty dress of the dancers, but she soon finds herself drawn into the devil-may-care attitude of the patrons and performers. Lilia also finds herself becoming fascinated with belly dancing, and begins learning how to perform the sensuous dances herself; in time, she becomes a performer at the club and finds herself drawn into a relationship with Chokri. Satin Rouge was the first feature from writer and director Raja Amari.

    Clever and dazzling

    This has been one of my favorite films since I saw it in the movie theater a couple of years ago. The plot is very clever, the movie is very well-acted, the characters are interesting, and the caberet scenes are full of primal enthusiasm and excitement. The transformation of character that the heroine undergoes during the course of the story is fascinating. Fans of middle-eastern music and bellydance will love this film. BUT, there is an unfortunate drawback to the DVD version. The soundtrack is not synchronized properly with the video portion of the film. It's about half-second or more behind the action in the film. This can be distracting at times and detracts from the appeal of the film. I sent a message of complaint about this to Zeitgeist Films but I did not get a reply. It's very unfortunate that the people at Zeitgeist did not take the care to sync the soundtrack properly.
