Andalucía

Andalucía

In his second feature, the French-Senegalese film maker Alain Gomis again investigates themes such as identity (or its loss) and the relationship between the individual and society. In Andalucia the individual is personified by the gangling, much too tall Yacine, a 30-something of Algerian descent. Yacine‘s dreams are great but not very concrete, and he compares himself to his own detriment with people who have got much more going for them than he does. Incredibly beautiful leading performance by Samir Guesmi. A playful and poetic quest leads him via all kinds of strange encounters to an increasingly surrealist world and to Andalusia: a state of mind.
