Summary
The winner of four Cesar awards, including best picture and director, Abdellatif Kechiche's THE SECRET OF THE GRAIN is a stirring drama about the daily joys and struggles of a bustling French-Arab family. It has the texture of a documentary but a classic, almost Shakespearean structure: when patriarch Slimane acts on his wish to open a portside restaurant specializing in his ex-wife's couscous and fish, the extended clan's passions and problems explode, leading to an engrossing, suspenseful climax. With sensitivity and grit, THE SECRET OF THE GRAIN celebrates the role food plays in family life and gets to the core of contemporary immigrant experience. This 2-disc set has the following features & supplementary materials: High-definition digital master, approved by director Abdellatif Kechiche; video interview with Kechiche; "Sueur," Kechiche's extended reedit of the climactic belly-dancing sequence, featuring a video introduction by the director; video interview with film scholar Ludovic Cortade; excerpt from a "20 heures" television interview with Kechiche and actress Hafsia Herzi; video interviews with Herzi, actress Bouraouia Marzouk, and the film's musicians; theatrical trailer; improved English subtitle translation; PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film critic Wesley Morris. In French and Arabic with optional English subtitles; 1.85:1 aspect ratio
