Review
Told in flashback through the eyes of the daughter of a slave girl the film depicts the life and relationships, centrally between her and her mother, of a society of women bound to serve the feudalistic Tunisian Royal Family in whose palace they are prisoners. As the male royals sniff around the then adolescent narrator news filters in from the 'outside' world of political turmoil and riots against the French colonialists. Fascinating.
