Program note

Can a film dealing with a ′moneybag′ be reinterpreted in 2019 after numerous releases? The answer may be in this movie. Amine, a thief who was chased by police in a desert in Morocco, makes a grave and buries a bag of money he stole. After being released from prison, Amine becomes despondent when he learns that the tomb has become a landmark called the "the tomb of an unknown saint." Since then, he has only been staying in the village for a long time to take out his bag of money again, but of course the opportunity will not come smoothly. It is a debut film featuring nature, faith, desire, and death, but not lightly making a travesty of humans. The Moroccan director, who has been watching the reality of the desert more soberly than anyone else, turned it into a thoughtful comedy. The audiences who know that a moment of silence can be funnier than a hundred words of jokes will have no choice but to fall in love with this film. (Mann Kim)
