Movie Info

Amine steals a big bag of money and escapes into the hills with the police hot on his trail. Before he is arrested, he digs a grave to bury the cash and disguises it as a modest tomb. Years later, Amine is released from prison and sets off to find his money. In the mean time, a religious shrine has been built directly over the place he buried his cash. The mausoleum honors an unknown saint from the region whose tomb was recently discovered. Down the hill from the resting place of the "The Unkown Saint", a new village subsists on the pilgrims who travel from far and wide to visit the mausoleum. Amine settles into the village and begins plotting a way in. But with the loot now hidden in a holy place, retrieving it suddenly becomes much more complicated.

  • A droll, entertaining, absurdist fable about spirituality and greed that signals an important new talent.

  • [A] slight but nonetheless pleasurable story...

    May 15, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The Unknown Saint is a film that really enjoys itself; it strips down to basics but finds room for plenty of wry observational humour, moments of warmth and a dash of contemplation.

    October 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A darkly comedic parable about a man whose plans are thwarted at every step.

    October 3, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Alongside his writing, Alaa Eddine Aljemis shows an incredible aptness for visual humour, mirroring the minimalistic Moroccan landscapes, within the rudimentary nature of his characters and the small world in which they inhabit.

    August 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Aljem's approach leaves room for the comedy to be created by the situation, rather than forced into the form of a punch line or a gag.
