Le grand voyage by Ismaël Ferroukhi, 2004

Nicolas Cazalé, Mohamed Majd and Jacky Nercessian

Reda, a young French-Moroccan guy and his old father drive from the south of France to Mecca in order for the father to do his pilgrimage. At first distant, they gradually learn to know each other.

This great journey is an amazing movie about father-son relationship in a time where generations have created a gap and there is no more time for catching up. This journey is tough, physically, spiritually but humanly, in a learning experience about trust, truth and belief. Nicolas Cazalé is amazing of youth and assurance, while still fragile and ignorant. And his father's contrast of wisdom and weakness that his age is bringing is an amazing homage to the elder. Whatever your faith is made of, because at the end of the day, it is not a religious film as much as it is a film about human-hood.
