Le Grand Voyage

A middle-aged man of Moroccan descent (Mohamed Majd) embarks on a long journey from southern France to Mecca -- but for this crusade, he unexpectedly asks his son, Reda (Nicolas Cazalé), to go with him. Reda, a thoroughly Westernized teenager, is taken aback by the request, and even more surprised when his father says they will be traveling by car. Given their different cultures, the pair's relationship starts off cold and distant, but the ice starts to thaw as they get to know each other.
