Rabih, a blind musician, travels across rural Lebanon in search of a record of his own birth.

Descending into a void at the heart of his existence, Rabih encounters a nation incapable of telling his or its own narrative.


Critic Reviews for Tramontane

Though not without first film flaws, this echt-Lebanese drama intriguingly delves into the innumerable layers of deceit and willful amnesia that originated in the civil war but continue to straightjacket the nation's psyche.

Compelling because of the dignified performance of visually impaired musician Barakat Jabbour in the lead.

The barren yet tranquil countryside conceals the bloodshed that once ravaged it, but Boulghourjian is careful to omit politics or religion from his film as much as possible.

If you're no expert on Lebanon, the film's contemplations are all the more educational.

The performances are careworn and convincing, and the film is never less than compelling.

[An] interesting and distinctive if undeveloped feature debut, a kind of road-movie mystery.
