Movie Info

Abla runs a modest local bakery from her home in Casablanca where she lives alone with her 8 year-old daughter Warda. Their routine of housework and homework is interrupted one day by a knock on the door. It is Samia, a young woman looking for a job and a roof over her head. The little girl is immediately taken with the newcomer but her mother initially refuses to allow a pregnant stranger into their home. Gradually, however, Alba's resolve softens and Samia's arrival begins to offer all of them the prospect of a new life.

Critic Reviews for Adam

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (6)

Subtly moving, "Adam" is a beautiful expression of untainted sorority.

March 6, 2021 | Full Review…

Certain stylistic choices - a muted palette, the absence of a melodramatic score, hand-held camerawork - help temper sentimentality with verisimilitude.

March 4, 2021 | Full Review…

Despite the familiarity of the premise, there is something instantly appealing about Adam -- and about Touzani's style, which is plain without being artless.

September 9, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Adam is an intimate, confident portrait of a friendship that blossoms in a social context where shame and social acceptance dominate how women see themselves and others.

August 10, 2019 | Full Review…

With her debut feature "Adam," Maryam Touzani allows her audience to sit back and relax comfortably into a beautifully made, character-driven little gem that knows when and how to touch all the right buttons.
