Moroccan immigrants are everywhere on earth but not on other Universal planets .Now that everybody has the right to sign in to go to Mars via Nasa. Moroccans are invited by The National Aeronautics and Space Administration to record their names for future "Spatial Hrig".We may log in to Nasa's Science laboratory rover in order to get familiar or close to strange creatures that we call Extra-Terrrestres.Yet, some artists dream to go to Mars only to sing about love, others like myself want to see the magnificence of Allah’s beauty which remains eternal and the third ones want to make movies in slow motion, genre Mars Style. Good Luck.

Youssef Zeidan is an Egyptian writer, whose faith is Islamic.But, he happens to write a great novel based on truthful events about Christianity and its orthodoxy. His novel called « Azazil » literary meaning the Devil, awarded internationally this year 2009, talks about an Egyptian priest who travels from his native land to Jerusalem and else where in order to meet other priests to talk about theology; Jesus and his birth as a man but not as a God .This work signed by Youssef Zeidan makes controversial debates in the church of the Orthodox in Egypt and also in Rome.
There are great movies based on novels that talk about the church still make hot controversy around the world namely “I love cinema”, “Davinci Code”; “Il Nome Della Rosa” and of course our interesting book “Azazil” which is a delicious book to devour, because Youssef Zeidan, within his highly poetic and beautiful style of writing, succeeds to seduce his reader not to put his book away.

There is a famous saying in Maghreb that says if you want to charm people of north-africa,you just bring them Maalouma Mint El Meydah in order to enchant them "Habibi Habeytou". In fact, this lady, having beautiful Saharian charm, can deeply move people to blissful moments.
Maalouma is a Mauritanian singer who becomes the first parliamentary lady releasing an album. She surely charms her fan with her sweet voice that has mysterious tone and intonation; the secret of this is her mixing up Ray music with Mauritanian folklore using all modern musical instruments.
Maalouma Mint El Meydah belongs to an African country called Mauritania which is is named after the ancient Berber kingdom of Mauretania. The capital and largest city is Nouakchott, located on the Atlantic coast.

Gran Torino is another magical movie made by a great actor and filmmaker Clint Eatwood.Some critics say that this movie is about the new age of America, some say it is a cinema of Barrack of Obama; whereas others state it is a new genre of drama movies that is targeted to hit box office in the sates. I think this movie simply belongs to an intelligent cinema remarkably made by a master of filmmaking called Clint Eastwood.
It is true that we have missed to watch good films coming from the sates, although Gran Torino shifts to the genre of realistic films. The movie is a 2008 American drama film directed ,produced and starring by Clint Eastwood.Its story talks about a Korean veteran haunted by memories of the war conflict. “A racist Korean War veteran living in a crime-ridden Detroit neighbourhood is forced to confront his own lingering prejudice when a troubled Hmong teen from his neighbourhood attempts to steal his prized Gran Torino.”
The leading role chosen by Clint Eastwood is Walt Kowalski who has a beautiful car called Gran Torino planned unfortunately to be stolen by Hmong neighbors and precisely by a shy Thao Vang Lor (Bee Vang). His feisty sister Sue (Ahney Her) succeeds to be a friend of Mr. Kowalski who in turn becomes nearly a member of Hmong .Lately in the movie, he heroically dies for them.
What strikes me most is the final scene when Mr. Kowalski prepares himself to revenge his neighbors. Technically speaking, Nick Schenk,the screenplay is intelligent to make us thought that Mr. Kowalski is going to revenge his neighbors by using all reversed techniques like for example asking his intimate barber to borrow him his razor and the locking up young thomg into Walt ‘s house to prevent him to do any tragic mistakes .All reveals a brilliant style o film writing. We have the impression that the protagonist is going to shed blood through an unpitiful armada ,but in fact, by our surprise and deceit Mr. Kowalski is killed and therefore this latter was preparing to die may be to get rid of horrible images of his past and also for his principles to die as a man.
