Khemir has stated that he wished to show, in the film, “an open, tolerant and friendly Islamic culture, full of love and wisdom…” an Islam that is different from the one depicted by the media in the aftermath of 9/11, and that the unusual structure of the film was a deliberate attempt to imitate the structure of Sufi visions and dances, aimed at allowing the spectator “forget about his own ego and to put it aside in order to open up to the reality of the world.”
