24 January 2023:
Karim Berrhouma's EVEN GOD WON'T FORGIVE held a second sold-out screening on Friday, January 20th in Paris at Les 7 Parnassiens following the success of the first, which was on January 13th at the same venue in the presence of Berrhouma and actor Bilel Slatnia.
The film garnered widespread acclaim, receiving the admiration of audiences and critics alike.
The film has also been running in Tunisian cinemas since December 21st, achieving enormous success locally and selling over 70,000 tickets well into its fourth week of screenings.
EVEN GOD WON'T FORGIVE has also received generally favorable reviews, with La Presse Magazine saying that it "is a film that is packed with dangers and full of risks, owing to director Karim Berrhouma's bravery in taking such risks."
Meanwhile, Kapitalis wrote about the film saying: "Finally, a Tunisian film that goes above and beyond the usual and adds to the auteur's filmography."
Additionally, EVEN GOD WON'T FORGIVE was shortlisted for the Cairo Francophone Film Festival's Long Feature and Documentary Official Competition, where it won a jury’s special mention and the Festival Maghrébin du Film d'Oujda's Official Competition.
The film follows the story of Tunisia's most infamous serial killer — the man behind the murder of 13 children in the 1980s and the last convict to be executed in the country.
EVEN GOD WON'T FORGIVE was written and directed by Karim Berrhouma — a self-taught director and scriptwriter who, after initially studying graphic design, worked in a production company, directed commercials for TV, and began producing music videos for local artists in late 2010.
Eventually, he went on to write and direct four short films before producing and directing his first feature film in 2021.
Produced by Mejdi Housseini, Sameh Smaoui, and Nabil Chaouech's RED DOG FX, the film stars Ahmed Landolsi, Hedi Mejri, Bilel Slatnia, Maysa Sassi, Fathi Akkeri, Moncef Ajengui, Imen Mannai, Fakher Wahchi, Moez Baatour, and Neji Marouani. Moreover, MAD Solutions is managing the film's distribution in the Arab world.
