Headbang Lullaby

un film de Hicham Lasri
2017 Berlinale Panorama competition Casablanca, June 11, 1986, day of the world cup After yet another blunder, an embittered cop, Daoud, is sent by his dissatis edsuperiors to spend a day on a bridge between two warring neighborhoods to protect the hypothetical passage of the Royal procession. At the same time a hopeless Don Quixote and a lazy Don Juan, Daoud is a pathetic womanizer who is the despair of everyone, starting with his lucid and exhausted wife and his ill- tempered chief. Prisoner of the bridge, Daoud will be transformed upon contact with the inhabitants of both villages. He will learn maturity after spending time with a ve year old child and a mother who upheld her dignity, despite a shaved skull by the secret police. He will take a life lesson from two Moqadems*, mean-spirited enemy brothers and a facetious head of police. This seemingly normal day made of absurd waiting, improbable encounters and brutal poetry takes place under the giant shadow of a messianic monarch whose passage disturbs the delicate balance of this motley population. * Representatives of power at the level of a neighborhood or a village.
