As a former subscriber to the Film Movement, an organization dedicated to bringing obscure foreign films to the attention of sloths and the disorganized masses, I appreciate subtitles. (Sometimes I wonder why British sitcoms don't have them, since I typically only caught one in every 12 of the insults that Edina and Patsy traded on episodes of AbFab, but as usual I digress.) Anyway, Crossed Destinities, a Moroccan film that screens Feb. 2 as part of the Sister Cities International Film Festival in honor of sister city El Jajida, Morocco. The French film set in Morocco follows Abdelkhalek and Rachida as they play host to their college friends, invited to spend the weekend at their beautiful beach house but don't know who sent the invitations bringing them all together. The group of 40-somethings begin to recall stories of their past and reveal to each other, and themselves, veiled truths and long hidden secrets with a central thread of mystery weaving through the story.
