Le graine et le mulet / The Secret of the Grain (2007)

 

A French-Tunisian drama about an unemployed shipyard worker who converts a boat into a restaurant in order to provide for his large, boisterous migrant family. The title translates literally as ‘couscous and mullet’, which is just what guests are served, alongside an erotic belly-dance show. Indeed a sensory feast!
