Rock the Casbah

The whole family is reunited when Sofia comes back for her father's funeral. Quickly, inner problems are revealed. "Rock the Casbah is consistently engaging and frequently amusing, largely due to the vivid performances by a strong cast, fleet pacing by writer-director Laila Marrakchi (Marock), and some sharp observations about the role of women in an upper-class milieu torn between Muslim traditions and Western influences." - Variety.com
