Tangerine

GER/Morocco 2008, 95 min

Tangiers, Morocco. A complicate love triangle between a young Moroccan woman and a German couple. Money, dishonesty and prostitution occur as antagonists of real friendship and moreover of love.

Synopsis

Tangiers, Morocco. Amira lands on the street after her family throw her out because she would rather become a dancer than be married or work as a housekeeper. She moves in with some friends who make a living as prostitutes. Pia and Tom, musicians from Germany, meet Amira in a disco. Pia is fascinated watching Amira dance. The three become friends, but Amira sets her sights on Pia’s boyfriend Tom. Pia thinks that maybe a love triangle might just liven up her troubled relationship with Tom. But Amira sees her big chance in an affair with Tom.
