Dheepan, 2015

Director: Jacques Audiard

Drama


Length: 1h49 mins

With this drama that won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015, which deftly combines seemingly disparate genres, French filmmaker Jacques Audiard cemented his status as a titan of contemporary world cinema. The non-professional actor Antonythasan Je- suthasan (a former child soldier himself) stars as a Tamil fighter who, along with a woman and a child posing as his wife and daughter, flees war-torn Sri Lanka only to land in a Paris suburb blighted by drugs. As the makeshift family embarks on a new life, Dheepan settles into intimate social-realist mode before transforming into a dynamic turf-war thriller, as well as an unsettling study of the psychological aftereffects of combat. Searing and sensitive, Audiard’s film is a unique depiction of the refugee experi- ence as a continuous crisis of identity.

In French and Tamil with English subtitles
