Movie Info

Out of filial duty and a sense of adventure, Reda, a young French man, agrees to accompany his elderly Moroccan father on the hajj -- the pilgrimage to Mecca. It is an obligatory trip for every good Muslim who can afford it. The only catch: the journey from France to Saudi Arabia will be by car. Initially, Reda doesn't understand why his father doesn't simply take a plane and be done with it. His father responds that the pilgrimage should be as arduous a journey as possible to show the believer's faith. And, so it proves to be. Along the way the father and son will cross national borders, seas, even continents, but no distance is greater than the one they cross to come to terms with each other.

Critic Reviews for Le grand voyage

All Critics (6)

a story told on both the largest and smallest scales. It's fascinating both ways.

July 16, 2006 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Dares to confront spiritual hot topics like the collision between Islam and the West ... in a refreshingly balanced, understanding way.

the film's final scenes in Mecca are truly awe-inspiring

Audience Reviews for Le grand voyage

I was expecting the father and son to grow together over the course of their journey. I believe that was the intent of the film maker. I kept waiting, but very little true understanding developed between them. They didnt seem to move much further in their relationship than when the movie began. Not a bad movie, but definitely not very exciting...
