Intelligent writing, well formed characters and mature execution all add considerable weight to this uneasy and topical study of infanticide within a complex family unit. It's wonderful to see Arestrup and Rahir back together again in vastly different roles to Un Prophete. Some of the Moroccan actors are a little less convincing but this is well worth a watch.
