Il sera suivi de What a wonderful world (2006) un exercice cinephilique charge de clins d'oeil, du cinema de Buter Keaton a Jacques Tati. Dans son troisieme long metrage Mort a vendre (2011), il part du pretexte d'un hold up rocambolesque pour dissequer les drames d'une jeunesse urbaine sur un fond d'image crepusculaire.
Comparisons abound to Jacques Tati and Jim Jarmusch and, like the latter, Suleiman has a keen sense of juxtaposing incongruous images with existing music -- the soundtrack of "Divine Intervention" namechecks Arab talents from vintage legend Mohammed Abdel Wahab to contemporary superstar Amr Diab and indie heroes Soapkills.

"My love of early modern also explains why I love Jacques Doucet [the French couturier] and French filmmakers like Jean Boyer and Jacques Tati." All of these French artists and more figure in the mood board Perrin arranged for her current collection.
Just imagine Tuffers as Harold Lloyd hanging from a skyscraper clock in a new version of 'Safety Last',' or standing with a smashed house front all around him like Buster Keaton in 'Steamboat Bill Jr' or perhaps taking on board something more modern such as the role of Jacques Tati in 'Monsieur Hulot's Holiday' - I bet the Chipping Barnet-born star's mangling of the French language would actually add a lot to this movie.
