From the Dardenne Brothers comes another bold work which reminds viewers of their mastery in situating stories in the realism of today’s world. Set in a small Belgian town, the destiny of Ahmed, a young Muslim teenager, is caught between his gradual introduction to radicalized ideals of extremism, his own purity, and life’s temptations. His single mother goes to extremes to protect her son and keep him on the right path. The film is a radically empathetic look at the effect of religious fanaticism on the impressionable. The film won the brothers the Best Director award at the 2019 Festival de Cannes. In French and Arabic with English subtitles. Contains mature content, including sexual situations.
