Set amongst the North African community in the Mediterranean port of Sète, Couscous is a critically acclaimed, warm and engrossing family drama that features some of the most mouth-watering scenes of food and feasting ever committed to celluloid. When sixty-something shipyard worker Slimane is laid off, he determines to realise his long-held dream of opening a couscous restaurant. With the odds stacked against him, his only chance of success is to rally the support of his unruly extended family, including his ex-wife, children, mistress and her beautiful hot-headed daughter. But simmering feuds and rivalries have to be overcome before the arrival of the restaurant’s make-or-break opening night on which they must risk everything.
