This film was last shown on 21 February 2019
Amin (Shaïn Boumedine), an aspiring screenwriter living in Paris, returns home for the summer to a fishing village in the South of France where he grew up to reconnect with his family and his childhood friends. Together with his cousin Tony (Salim Kechiouche) and his best friend Ophélie (Ophélie Bau), he spends his time between the Tunisian restaurant run by his parents, the local bars and the beaches frequented by girls on holiday. Armed with his camera and guided by the bright summer light of the Mediterranean coast, Amin pursues his philosophical quest while gathering inspiration for his screenplays. When it comes to love, only Mektoub (‘destiny’ in Arabic) can decide.
The latest film from director Abdellatif Kechiche (Blue Is the Warmest Colour) is a sun drenched coming-of-age saga that casts a nostalgic glow on the wonders of youth.
