Description

It takes will, courage and determination to realise a dream. But most of all, it takes family.

Lauded at the 2007 Venice Film Festival, and winner of multiple awards at the 2008 Cèsars (the French Oscars®) including Best Film and Best Direction, Abdellatif Kechiche's The Secret of the Grain is a touching and resoundingly humanistic story set in the rustic port of Sète in southeastern France.

Slimane has worked in the same shipyard job for over 35 years, when his growing dissatisfaction 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 deliciously slow-burning drama about fate, food and family.
