Bled Number One
by Rabah Ameur-Zaimeche (2006) with Rabah Ameur-Zaimeche, Meriem Serbah, Abel Jafri (France, Algérie – 96 mins.)
In this docu-poetic drama, Kamel, just out of prison, is deported to his home country, Algeria, where he is obliged to observe with lucidity a country undergoing rapid change, torn between a desire for modernity and respecting tradition; the perpetual outsider finds a soul-mate in an aspiring jazz singer Louisa.
