What others think

Largely improvised, Erige Sehiri’s film packs argument, gossip, romance and social criticism into a busy day of fruit picking.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
Fig pickers flirt, conspire and exchange snatches of gossip while toiling in the gorgeous Tunisian sunlight in Erige Sehiri’s slow-burning feature debut.
Philip Concannon Sight and Sound
Sehiri’s intimate focus, especially in the film’s closing sequence, allows the film to bloom into a warm and tender embrace of the underlying sisterhood and camaraderie between a coterie of young women that refuse to be seen as a monolith.
