Young Ahmed (TBC)

★★★★ – Time Out. Belgium's Dardenne brothers (Two Days, One Night, The Kid with a Bike) take a controversial turn in this portrait of a radicalised Muslim teen who finds himself caught between his imam's ideals of unity and life's temptations.

"★★★★ – a wise and sensitive contribution to a timely debate" – Time Out


"A subtle and timely tale of radicalisation" – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian


Always sympathetic to stories of troubled youth, Belgium's Dardenne (Two Days, One Night, The Kid with a Bike) brothers take a controversial turn in this portrait of a radicalised Muslim teen who finds himself caught between his militant imam's ideals of unity and life's temptations.


A relatively normal teen just weeks before, Ahmed (Ben Addi) becomes obsessed with prayer and the “purity” of those around him – refusing to shake the hand of his teacher because she’s a woman, and castigating his mother for drinking alcohol – with devastating results.
