He is most notably known for his role as the main character, Malik El Djebena, in the 2009 award-winning French movie A Prophet.
Revelatory in A Prophet. Such an expressive face and a spirit that invites empathy and connection. I cannot wait to see more of him.
I think I literally fell in love with his character and his looks for a couple of months...I still can't look at an image of him without thinking about what could have been. I'm a dude. :(
