Nour, a 14-year-old boy, is enjoying the beginning of the summer holidays in the South of France. He is the youngest of four brothers. They live together in a council estate, taking turns caring for their mother who is in a coma. She used to love Italian Opera, so Nour plays it for her, and develops a passion for that music. Between community work and rising tensions at home, Nour dreams of escaping to a faraway place. When he crosses paths with Sarah, an Opera singer teaching summer classes, he finally finds the opportunity to come out of his shell and explore new horizons.
In the early days of his career he worked as an actor and a theatre director. At the age of 18 he brought to the stage the work of Hédi Tillette de Clermont-Tonnerre ‘Pourquoi mes Frères et moi on est parti’. His collaboration with this author continued for several years, while he worked on other projects, and in parallel with his work in the theatre he began his career as an actor in the cinema. In 2012 he wrote and directed his first short film, ‘Le Sac’, which was followed in 2017 by ‘Hédi & Sarah’ and ‘Red Star’ in 2020, all of them selected at numerous festivals, such as Clermont-Ferrand. In 2021 he made his feature film debut with ‘Mes frères et moi’, whose world premiere took place in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival. He is currently writing his second feature, based on the work of Elise Arfi.
