Product Overview

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.

ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review 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.
