One of the more interesting films released this fortnight is this slowly revealing essay on faith
and family. When a young man from the South of France drives his father to Mecca for a pilgrimage, the stage is set for some weirdly surreal adventures as the two clash over their opposing beliefs and ideologies. lsmaél Ferroukhi’s thoughtful and beautiful film stays in the memory long
after viewing. Recommended.
