Tag Archives: Casablanca


Moroccan movie “Marock” (2006), directed by Laila Marrakchi and starring Morjana Alaoui and Matthieu Boujenah among others.

The movie deals with the controversial topic of romance between a Jewish boy and a Muslim girl in upper class Casablanca. There is a simmering tension in the air and these kids are rich college kids out to have some fun and love.

Rita (Morjana Alaoui) and Yourri (Matthieu Boujenah) are besotted with each other. Both their parents are rich with one family observing Ramadan. There is not much of a story line apart from the romance. The ending is tragic though with some hope for the future.
