Le Grand voyage
DetailsDirector: Ismael Ferroukhi Country: France/Morocco
Cert: PG Year: 2004 Length: 108 minsLanguage: French/Arabic
An overbearing Moroccan father forces his irreligious son to drive him on a 3000 mile Islamic pilgrimage from France to Mecca (in an old Peugeot). A sweet-natured and compelling road movie with a rigorous absence of sentimentality, what makes this film truly remarkable are the unprecedented climactic scenes amidst the collective fervour of Mecca.
