After travelling to London to check on their missing children in the wake of the 2005 terror attack on the city, two strangers come to discover their respective children had been living together at the time of the attacks.

Our take

Between the hit wartime epics Days of Glory (about North Africans fighting for France during WW2) and Outside the Law (Algerians fighting for independence), Rachid Bouchareb made this intimate drama about the 2005 London terror attacks, which won the Silver Bear in competition at the Berlinale.
