Adam is a 2019 Moroccan film (written and directed by Maryam Touzani) which
focuses on a young unwed pregnant woman Samia (Nissrine Erradil) who is desperately seeking work in the side streets of Casablanca. She is taken in by a jaded and fiercely self-sufficient widowed baker, Abla (Lubna Azabal), an arrangement initially intended to be limited to just a couple of days; but Samia’s stay is extended as a rapport grows between the two women and the host’s young daughter Warda. This is drama with gentle humour, a feeling for physical detail, and attentive observation of everyday routines, especially around the bakery. Viewers are prompted to wonder what will happen when the child arrives, but it is impossible to tell along the way whether things will turn out well.
