What amazes me in Nacer’s movies is his insertion of both culture of life and death .Filming Sahara is also something he loves and admires .We might say that Nacer is considered one of the most important comtemporary visual writers in the Arab world .
"The desert… evokes the Arabic language, which bears the memory of its origins. In every Arabic word, there is a bit of flowing sand. It is also one of the main sources of Arabic love poetry. In all three of my movies… the desert is a character in itself."
