Free Men 2.0 stars

Movie poster


A methodical meditation on the meaning of “we,” Free Men tells the story of Algerians — both Muslim and Jewish — living in Paris during the German occupation. To escape persecution, some of those Jews are carrying forged papers declaring them to be Muslims — common heritage trumping religious difference. Our ticket into this complicated world is Younes, a lukewarm Muslim who gets drawn in through family connections, then gets his circle of moral identification stretched in some surprising ways. Director Ismaël Ferroukhi keeps the proceedings moving smoothly.
