Satin Rouge poster
A widowed Tunisian seamstress takes an unlikely journey of self-discovery in writer- director Raja Amari’s sumptuous and sensual SATIN ROUGE. While investigating a suspected liaison between her headstrong teenaged daughter and a cabaret musician, young widow Lilia becomes drawn to an exotic nightclub netherworld of Rubenesque belly dancers and nocturnal pleasure-seekers. She strikes up a friendship with one of the dancers, then eventually takes the stage herself—quickly becoming the favorite of both cabaret patrons and the club’s hot-blooded drummer. As she gradually sheds her shapeless, matronly housedresses for the flamboyantly sequined bar-girl garb, she also begins to emerge from her cocoon of melancholy and loneliness.
