Dheepan 'happy' family

Dheepan halting bonding

 

While this new ‘family’ haltingly bond and settle down, Dheepan cannot wholly forget his wartime trauma nor ignore the criminality threatening his new community.

Audiard (Rust and Bone, A Prophet) was awarded the Palme d’Or at Cannes for audaciously combining an undeniably touching, absorbing family drama with an explosive final act that has divided reviewers and the David Lean committee alike!
