The Other Son
Le Fils de L’Autre
de Lorraine Lévy
Carefree Joseph (Monsieur Batignole’s Jule Sitruk) is 18-years-old and about to do his compulsory service in the Israeli army. When he takes a mandatory blood test, he is more worried about traces of drugs showing up to the dismay of his army commander father Alon (the fabulous Pascal Elbé), than anything else.
The results however come back and shockingly reveal that he is not in fact his parents’ biological son after he was inadvertently switched at birth with Yacine (Mehdi Dehbi), the son of a Palestinian family from the West Bank.
Joseph’s French mother (the gorgeous Emmanuelle Devos), Alon and Yacine’s family are devastated by the news and have to deal with the aftermath of relaying the information to their two sons. This revelation turns the lives of these two families upside-down, forcing them to reassess their respective identities, their values and their beliefs.Watch Trailer
