Selma has returned to Tunis and wants to open up a psychotherapy practice. As she settles in, she’s faced with increasing complications—a local that’s not keen on the talking cure, a confusing bureaucratic circus and a strapping cop, Naim, who’s keeping a close eye on her every move.
A charming fish-out-of-water comedy, this debut feature places local cultural anxieties on the therapist’s couch. Starring an effortlessly charismatic Golshifteh Farahani, Arab Blues affectionately maps the social landscapes of post-revolution Tunisia with wit, warmth, and a keen eye for the absurd.
