flash light / acting french / mehdi dehbi / the other son

One of our “Acting French” obsessions, Mehdi Dehbi, seen in his latest film, The Other Son.


Director: Lorraine Lévy – Cast: Emmanuelle Devos, Pascal Elbé, Jules Sitruk, Mehdi Dehbi, Areen Omari

As he prepares to join the Israeli army for his national service, Joseph discovers he is not his parents’ biological son, but that he was inadvertently switched at birth with Yassin, the son of a Palestinian family from the West Bank. This revelation turns the lives of these two families upside-down, forcing them to reassess their respective identities, their values and their beliefs.
