Raja (2003)

An orphaned young woman with a checkered past begins work as a gardener for a benevolent Frenchman in Morocco. She is seeking love and stability. He is seeking sex. It becomes a dramatic and painful game to see if one will offer what the other desires as they interchange dialogue in broken French and Arabic.

The film certainly has merit as a study in human behaviour and how cultures and classes clash. Prepare to be befuddled as it may be difficult to understand all the nuances in the film. There is plenty of tension however to keep you locked into the story and the characters.
