Faouzi Bensaïdi - Morocco - 2023 - 125’ min
Arabic sproken with English subtitles

In their wrinkled suits and ties, two petty crooks, Mehdi and Hamid, drive around southern Morocco in their car. Their mission: to recover a backlog of loans for their agency that have not been repaid by villagers overwhelmed by poverty and drought.
Here comedy meets road film and the film even veers into western territory when the two jaded mercenaries, under pressure themselves, cross paths with a highwayman.

Deurwaarders Mehdi en Hamid trekken al jaren samen door Marokko om schulden te innen. Vaak is er niet voldoende geld om leningen af te betalen. Dan nemen ze maar al te graag geiten en tapijten in beslag.
Hun saaie en kortzichtige leventje neemt plots een onverwachte wending wanneer ze een mysterieuze man ontmoeten aan een afgelegen tankstation.
