Not many debuting directors are able to bring subtlety and depth to a heart-rending subject, which is just one reason why Mehdi M. Barsaoui’s superb “A Son” deserves significant attention. ~ Variety
It’s a film reminiscent of the work of Iranian master Asghar Farhadi [A Separation, The Salesman], full of twists and turns as it puts its characters in increasingly tragic situations. ~ Cineuropa
Directed by Mehdi Barsaoui, 96 minutes, 2019, Tunisia, drama in Arabic (with English subtitles)
