In Detail

Hassan (Abdellatif Masstouri) and his son Issam (Ayoub Elaid) are a mismatched pair of itinerant criminals in Casablanca who are given a kidnapping job by a local crime lord. The plan does not go as expected and the duo are left with the task of disposing of a body – a rather large one.

During the dark night that follows, the balance of power and authority between father and son shifts, though the price Issam pays for taking control will be, if all goes well, a life of indentured mob servitude. The film is briskly told with atmospheric tension, visceral and confidently cavalier in its depiction of everyday underworld brutality, with a sharp, street-lit sense of. Viewers will appreciate actors rich in weathered, storied faces of the kind not typically found by the dozen in acting schools.

Very well received in Cannes 2023.
