Young Ahmed

Drama 1h 25m 2021

The Dardenne Brothers helm another naturalistic yet highly crafted Belgian drama about a teenager with a dangerous extremist interpretation of the Quran.

“The Dardennes have been the reigning kings of social realism for years, and tell these sort of morality fables on autopilot, but they’re such precise storytellers that even a minor work like “Young Ahmed” manages to deliver tense showdowns riddled with real-world connotations.” ~ Eric Kohn, Indiewire.
