Mohammed Choukri's for Bread Only adapted into Italian movie
Morocco, Local, 11/22/2003
The renowned For Bread Only written by the late Mohammed Choukri, will be adapted into an Italian cinema production by Essebi Cinematographica.
After completing the shooting in Italy, the team will now move to Morocco for the last part, said EC executive, Delia de Laurentis.
Producers said they chose to adapt the novel for the intensity of the autobiography of Mohammed Choukri, who was self-educated and who succeeded in overcoming marginalization.
Algeria's Rachid Benhadj will write For Bread Only's screenplay. He has made several short films, mainly "Stationnement interdit" (1981), "Le mirage" and "Le fusil" (1983), before turning to long ones such as is "Rose des sables/Louss" (1989) "Touchia" (1992) and "Mirka" (1999).
Mohammed Choukri's character will be played by Franco-Moroccan Said Taghmaoui.
The writer died last week in Rabat. Born in 1935, Choukri led a vagabond life and was illiterate until the age of 21. Later, he recounted parts of his life in several books, most importantly in his best seller "for bread alone" which was translated to 39 languages.
