You Will Die at Twenty Photos

Movie Info

Winner of the Lion of the Future Award for best Debut Feature at the Venice Film Festival, YOU WILL DIE AT TWENTY is visually sumptuous "coming-of-death" fable. During her son's naming ceremony, a Sheikh predicts that Sakina's child will die at the age of 20. Haunted by this prophecy, Sakina becomes overly protective of her son Muzamil, who grows up knowing about his fate. As Muzamil escapes Sakina's ever-watchful eye, he encounters friends, ideas and challenges that make him question his destiny. Sudan's first Oscar submission, YOU WILL DIE AT TWENTY is an auspicious debut and a moving meditation on what it means to live in the present.

Critic Reviews for You Will Die at Twenty

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (1)

  • Amjad Abu Alala's stunningly photographed drama challenges strict dogmatic practices and posits how a life without a moral code can cause much damage.

    January 28, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Abu Alala's ardent attention to daily details, rooted in political and cultural history, offers a powerful symbolic vision of the tormented and violent legacy of dogmatism and dictatorship.

    January 25, 2021 | Full Review…
  • A vibrant and transfixing revelation, "You Will Die at 20" is as novel a vision as we may see this year. From its meaningful ideas on the here and the hereafter, its lesson for Muzamil is that after perishing a rebirth may follow.

    January 23, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Alala deepens this simple, fable-like premise into a lyrical confrontation with the certitudes of faith and the life-giving powers of doubt.

    January 21, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Some may find a clash between its fable-like guilelessness and other moments when the outside world's cynicism breaks in, yet the film remains a touching, nonjudgmental depiction of people circumscribed by superstition.

    September 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [The main] character is so passive it is hard to feel much for him as he sits around and wastes most of what little time he has.
