Movie Review: Hands and Cloth

There was something profound in Albert Brooks’ failed odyssey looking for humor in the Muslim World, a film that searched for humor within a spiritual culture that, to most Westerners, seems completely humorless.

So any attempt at lightness coming out of the Islamic world can be renowned, even if the laughs aren’t as recurrent or as big as you’d like.

Omar Chraibi’s film, Hands and Cloth is a humor about a rustic Moroccan puppeteer going to arts school in the big city. The chief virtue of this slight and gentle-hearted, fish-out-of-water humor is its novel setting and the world the film takes us into.
