Palestinian and Israeli babies swapped at birth in Lorraine Levy's Le Fils de l’Autre
Shooting has been underway in Tel Aviv for the past two weeks on Lorraine Levy’s third feature: Le Fils de l’Autre (“The Son of the Other”). After her two comedies (The First Time I Was 20 in 2004 and London Mon Amour in 2008, which amassed 169,000 and 674,000 admissions, respectively), the director is tackling a more sensitive family subject which touches on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The cast includes Jules Sitruk (discovered in I, Caesar and recently seen in My Father Is a Cleaning Lady), Mehdi Dehbi (who came to attention in He Is My Girl), Emmanuelle Devos (soon to grace screens in Bachelor Days Are Over), Pascal Elbé (Turk’s Head), Areen Omari and Khalifa Natour.
