A Season in France (12A)
2018, France, dir. Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, 100 minutes
Solid and likeable Abbas is doing his best for his family after escaping the war-torn Central African Republic to France. He’s troubled by many things but he keeps his head down, works hard and meets Carole – a kind and loving woman. Abbas craves a stable life but his asylum application is pending and the spectre of expulsion does nothing to dispel his sense of impotence against the bureaucracy he faces. A strong and compassionate film.
