Here's a new french movie i've read about. (I'm still looking for it thoug). IHere is the french synopsis :

"Dino Fabrizzi est le vendeur numéro un de la concession Maserati de Nice. A 42 ans, il arrive à un tournant de sa vie, le poste de directeur lui est ouvertement proposé et sa compagne depuis un an, Hélène, a la ferme intention de l'épouser. Pour Dino, la vie est belle, sauf que cette vie parfaite s'est construite sur un mensonge. Dino s'appelle en fait Mourad Ben Saoud. Ni son patron, ni Hélène et encore moins ses parents ne sont au courant de cette fausse identité... Dans dix jours débute le ramadan et Mourad qui passe outre tous les ans devra cette fois assumer la promesse faite à son père malade. Faire le ramadan à sa place... Pour Dino, l'italien, cela ne va pas être simple."

Basically its the strory of an arab man posing as an Italian in his everyday life. Every thing is fine for him, until the day his dad falls ill and asks his son as a favor to do ramadan in his place. I find it to be an intriguing and interesting story. I'll have to see the ending to determine in which direction to go (will he accept his heritage and stop pretending or will the movie simply laugh off the whole situation?).... Anyhooo, here's the trailer. Enjoy!

What can my enemies possibly do to me? My paradise is in my heart; wherever I go it goes with me, insepa­rable from me. For me, prison is a place of (religious) retreat; ex­ecution is my opportunity for martyrdom; and exile from my town is but a chance to travel ......
