Room to Rent (2000)

Directed by
Khalid Al-Haggar

Saïd Taghmaoui is Ali, an Egyptian student trying to make it as a writer in London. Threatened with deportation, he marries Juliette Lewis, a nightclub Monroe-impersonator and gets entangled with gay photographer Rupert Graves, who offers him a room for just a few artistic magazine shots. And, as a part-time belly-dance instructor, life gets further complicated when he has to fend off the attentions of 40-something pupil Clementine Celarie in Khaled Al Haggar's debut film, a delightfully unusual comedy drama.
