Salut Cousin!

Algerian filmmaker Merzak Allouache, whose remarkable 1993 feature Bab El-Oued City led to his exile, switches to a lighter mode in this entertaining and flavorsome 1996 comedy about an Algerian who turns up in Paris to collect a suitcase of contraband clothes (for his boss to sell back home) and winds up spending a few days with his cousin, a con artist. 102 min. (JR)
