Time-capsule exoticism centering around a free-thinking Englishwoman in search of Sufi wisdom in Morocco, 1972, with her two young daughters in tow. More travelogue than narrative — an effect heightened by the montage-y brevity of most of the scenes — but nice bright color. And director Gillies MacKinnon, who handled children well in Small Faces, coaxes lifelike portraits out of the two girls, Carrie Mullan and Bella Riza. With Kate Winslet and Saïd Taghmaoui. 1999.
