Young Ahmed

Part of the French Film Festival Season

Body

Belgium's Dardenne brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc, always sympathetic to stories of troubled youth, take a controversial turn in this portrait of a radicalised Muslim teen. Ahmed (Idir Ben Addi) finds himself caught between his imam's ideals of unity and life's temptations. As the film opens he has developed a dangerous connection with a militant imam (Othmane Moumen). Clues suggest these changes in Ahmed’s attitude are recent, as the boy who seems to have been a relatively normal teen just weeks before has become obsessed with prayer and the “purity” of those around him.
