Le Grand Voyage dvd 2004 film (France and Morocco) Award-winning film by Ismaël Ferroukhi. Reda, summoned to accompany his father on a pilgrimage to Mecca, complies reluctantly - as he preparing for his baccalaureat and, even more important, has a secret love relationship. The trip across Europe in a broken-down car is also the departure of his father: upon arrival in Mecca, both Reda and his father are not the characters they were at the start of the movie. Avoiding the hackneyed theme of the return to the homeland, the film uses the departure to renew a connection between two generations. Stars Nicolas CazalÃ©and Mohamad Majd. Unrated (rated PG in the UK), 108 minutes. Mainly in French and Arabic, but also some Bulgarian, English, Serbian, Italian and Turkish - with English subtitles.
