A few weeks before his college entrance exams, Reda (Nicolas Cazale), a young man who lives in the south of France, finds himself obligated to drive his father to Mecca. The wide cultural and generational gap between the two is worsened by their lack of communication. Reda finds it hard to accommodate his father, who demands respect for himself and his pilgrimage. From France, through Italy, Serbia, Turkey, Syria, Jordan to Saudi Arabia, the two embark on a road trip that will change their lives.

"...cozily feel-good...a near hallucinatory charge.  Dennis Lim, The Village Voice

Editor's Note
This intimate, intriguing, and thoughtful French film tells the story of Reda (Nicolas Cazale), a young man just weeks away from his college exams, whose strained relationships with both his father (Mohamed Majd) and his culture are put to the test when he drives the older man on his pilgrimage to Mecca.

Sight and Sound
"Ferroukhi's stirring road movie follows a father and son on the road to Mecca....Impressive." 04/01/2006 p.89

San Francisco Chronicle 9 of 10
In this remarkable directorial debut, the stern father of a Muslim family in France has his teenage son drive him to Mecca for the religious pilgrimage known as the hajj...Their characters are compelling and completely realistic, the acting is first-rate, and many scenes in this movie (which was shot in different countries, including Saudi Arabia) are breathtaking. "Le Grand Voyage" is undoubtedly one of the few features to film its central characters in Mecca, in the middle of a hajj. - Jonathan Curiel
