The Road to Love

A French-Algerian sociology student in Paris (Karim Tarek), straight but shooting a documentary about gay culture in the Maghreb, has a tough time interviewing young Arab emigres until he meets a flight attendant (Riyad Echahi) who's intrigued by both film and filmmaker. Like Eric Rohmer's sympathetic but clueless heroines, the student blunders into enlightenment; though he persists in intellectualizing his fascination with homosexuality, his body language changes the more time he spends around his new friend. Shot on digital video, this 2003 French romance is slowed by the hero's indecision and hampered by minimal production values, but its sweetness and buoyancy are hard to resist. Remi Lange directed. In French and Arabic with subtitles. 70 min.
