Translated from Arabic by William M. Hutchins

A deliriously dark comedy exploring the absurd tragedy of the human condition when left to the devices of our tech-obsessed society.

“I had many things in mind that I wanted to achieve before the Frenchwoman Katia arrived…”

So begins the story of Amir Tag Elsir’s French Perfume as told by Ali Jarjar — the town gossip and schemer of a poor community rich with sleazy bachelors, desperate women, soothsayers and secret police. Tasked to introduce his impoverished town to a chic foreign visitor, Ali’s attempts to make the best first impression are left in limbo as the newcomer perpetually postpones her trip.

Quickly escalating to a terrifying conclusion, Spike Jonze’s Her crashes into Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot as our charming narrator allows his attraction for a stranger’s online existence to become a frightening obsession in the real world.
