One of the most outstanding and critically acclaimed French films of the year comes from celebrated director Abdellatif Kechiche, whose L′esquive stormed the Cesars (French Oscars) in 2005, winning four awards including Best Film. This new drama - a touching and resoundingly humanistic story set in a small harbour in the southeast of France - cements his reputation. Set in the rustic port of Sète (superbly captured by the atmospheric cinematography of Lubomir Bakchev), The Secret of the Grain follows Slimane, whose growing dissatisfaction with the shipyard job he′s had for the last 35 years, prompts him to try to open his own restaurant. His dream seems unbelievable, but his contagious conviction and persistence work their way into the hearts of his loyal but dispersed family; the four children from his first marriage, his ex-wife, current girlfriend and her bright, outspoken daughter, Rym (played to great acclaim by the stunning newcomer Hafsia Herzi). A grand film about ordinary people, The Secret of the Grain is a slow-burning drama drenched with humanity (and - naturally - some mouth-watering meals), in the tradition of Babette′s Feast and Eat Drink Man Woman. This is a cinema experience not to be missed.
