Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Two families of Moroccan rug-makers are contrasted in this award-winning French-language film. The poor family makes its living by dyeing the wool used in the rugs made in the richer family's factory. When the boss of the factory refuses to see the son of the poor family following an accident which has injured his father, the poor son breaks into the boss's house. He is met by unsupportable abuse from the rich wife, who flogs him for dirtying her carpets.
