Arabian Nights
Netherlands / 2012 / Arabic, Dutch, Turkish dialogue with English subtitles / Colour / DCP / 83 minutes


SNACKBAR is a gritty, tense portrayal of the daily lives of a group of young Dutch-Arabs and Turks whose meeting point – and anchor in the ups and downs of urban life -- is the local snack bar, run by the amiable and fatherly Ali. This film features a brilliant ensemble cast of new discoveries – from the sensitively-portrayed Ali through to teenage actors and non-actors. Director Meral Uslu makes use of documentary techniques to deliver a gripping, taut drama.
