Kung Fu Zohra

Mabrouk El Mechri | FR/BE 2021 | 100 Min | DCP

When Zohra meets the charismatic Omar, she falls head over heels for him, and they move to a Parisian suburb. The first time he beats her, she hides her black eye behind sunglasses. When she finds herself in the same toxic relationship six years later because of her daughter, whom Omar loves to pieces, Zohra remembers her passion for martial arts movies. And when she meets an old Chinese man in a boxing gym, and he ends up teaching her kung fu, Zohra fights her way out, knifehand chop by knifehand chop. KUNG FU ZOHRA blends martial arts cinema with domestic violence drama. The result is one of the year’s most extraordinary films.
