Adhen

Synopsis

In an industrial zone outside Paris, religion and business collide in the confrontation between a shipping company owner and his Muslim employees. In what may be his greatest achievement to date, Ameur-Zaïmeche creates a hypnotic assemblage of quotidian scenes—the appearance of a nutria in a garage, the inauguration of a workplace mosque—that culminate in an unforgettable outburst of righteous anger. By limiting his scope to the symbolically rich and aesthetically striking microcosm of the industrial park, Ameur-Zaïmeche finds powerful expression for his themes of solidarity and oppression within the Muslim faith and late capitalism.
