Opening with a hilarious scene in which its protagonist attempts to explain to someone why he should refrain from renting Transformers 2, Die Welt is loose and energetic take on post-revolution Tunisia. Abdallah (Abdelhamid Naouara) is inspired by a one-night stand with a Dutch woman to finally make a break for Europe, with disastrous consequences. Using his own home movies and family members, Alex Pitstra brings a freewheeling quality to his debut. An evocative and very funny portrait of Tunisian youth, who seem to be in as hopeless a situation now as they ever were.
