Azur & Asmar
Filmfest 2007

AZUR AND ASMAR The Middle Ages. Blonde, blue-eyed Azur and dark-haired, dark-eyed Asmar, grow up together in France. They live with Azur’s severe father and his son’s nursemaid, Asmar’s gentle mother, until the father provokes a brutal separation. Azur is sent away to study, and Asmar and his mother driven out. Years pass. Now an adult, Azur remains haunted by memories of the sunny land of his nurse, and by her stories of the beautiful, imprisoned Fairy of the Djinns who must be set free. He sets sail, south across the high seas, to discover the country of his dreams and find love. Wild Bunch
