Description: The gulf between men and women in Tunisia -- political, psychological, and physical -- is explored in this downbeat drama from director Moufida Tlatli. On the island of Djerba, most of the men spend 11 months of the year away from home in Tunis, where they work and send money home to support the wives and children they leave behind. Aicha (Rabiaa Ben Abdallah) has told her husband Said (Ezzedine Gennoun) that she wants to live with him in Tunis. However, they have two teenage daughters, Meriem (Ghalia Ben Ali) and Emma (Hend Sabri), and he will allow Aicha to join him only under the condition that she bear him a son. Aicha weaves rugs in her spare time to help pay for her passage to Tunis, while she and her friends fend off the depression and desperate loneliness of their marriages. Meanwhile, Meriem, who is newly married, is dealing with her anxieties about sex, while her sister Emma is having an affair with one of the few married men on the island. La Saison Des Hommes was shown at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival as part of the Un Certain Regard program.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
