Satin Rouge

This lightweight mixture of Flashdance and How Stella Got Her Groove Back is notable mostly because it comes from the Muslim nation of Tunisia. Our main character is a middle-aged widow who sheds her unhappy mantle of sexless domesticity by belly dancing at a local cabaret (a secret she has to keep hidden from her family). Such a "you go girl" concept may seem old hat here in America, but rates as quite a shake-up in conservative Arab nations where sexual roles are strictly compartmentalized. Guess this one depends largely on your cultural perspective. In Arabic with English subtitles. 89 minutes
