Young Ahmed

The Dardenne brothers, present-day doyens of social realist cinema, take a lean and gripping look at religious fundamentalism through the story of a 13-year-old boy, driven to a horrific act after taking to heart an extremist interpretation of the Qu’ran espoused by an imam operating out of the stock room of the local corner shop.
