"A few weeks before his college entrance exams, Réda, 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. Réda 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"--Container.

A voyage without energy.
I see many Film Movement releases and this is among the weakest I've seen. Listless. It failed at everything it tried, whether road,father/son or spiritual journey. The huge throngs at Mecca at the end were impressive but otherwise I can't recommend. 2.5 / 5 and that may be generous.
