The title really does say it all. A TALE OF LOVE AND DESIRE follows Ahmed and Farah, who meet at the Sorbonne. Ahmed is immediately attracted to Farah, but he is hindered by his culture and lack of experience. Farah is everything Ahmed isn’t; she’s outgoing and outspoken, has a sense of adventure, and is eager to explore Paris. The pair have a meet-cute on the metro, and so begins their story of will they or won’t they. Ahmed and Farah’s chemistry explodes off the screen, so much so that we want to savor every second we see them together. Filled with stolen glances, swoon-worthy moments, and so much sexual tension, there is no doubt every viewer will be at the edge of their seat wanting more. —N.A.
