Golden Horseshoes

Golden Horseshoes (, translit.Safa'ih min dhahab, ) is a 1989 Tunisian drama film directed by Nouri Bouzid. It was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival.


Youssef Soltane, a 45-year-old Tunisian intellectual, is the product of a generation that lived the era of euphoria and great ideologies in the sixties, and their subsequent failure. He was incarcerated and tortured for his political opinions. Furthermore, his relationship with Zineb, a young, beautiful bourgeois, only brings him more trouble. During one long winter night, Youssef wanders in search of an emotional haven, prey to all the questions that flood his memory.
