Mektoub, My Love

Dir. Abdellatif Kechiche. France, 2017. 3h 1m. French/subs. Starring Shaïn Boumedine, Ophélie Bau, Salim Kechiouche, Lou Luttiau, Alexia Chardard, Hafsia Herzi.

Romantic drama from the Palme d’Or-winning director of Blue Is the Warmest Colour – about a screenwriter forced to choose between his lover and his career. A sprawling celebration of sun, sea and sex which casts a nostalgic glow on the summer of 1994.

‘An unruly, polymorphously perverse river of sensations, plunging the willing viewer into a roiling mass of pungent evocations. You’ll float too.’ Neil Young, BFI Sight and Sound Magazine

‘A 90s summer-romance pastoral of epic length and sexiness, marinaded in sunshine.’ ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
