Ever since breaking out in Jacques Audiard‘s “A Prophet,” Tahar Rahim has been actor many have been keeping an eye out. While he dabbled in Hollywood fare with a role in “The Eagle,” he’s mostly played to his strengths by sticking with foreign projects and this year alone, he featured in two films at Cannes: the nuclear romance “Grand Central” opposite Lea Seydoux, and Asghar Farhadi‘s critically acclaimed ensemble drama “The Past.” On the way is another picture, one that spent 2012 on the festival circuit hitting Cannes, Karlovy Vary, Zurich, Hamburg, New York, Göteborg, Seattle, São Paulo and more — Joachim Lafosse‘s “Our Children.”
Co-starring Emilie Dequenne and Niels Arestrup, the film tells the story of Mounir (Rahim), who ever since he was a boy has been living with and provided for by Doctor Pinget (Arestrup), living a comfortable life. But, when Mounir and his girlfriend Murielle (Dequenne) decide to marry and have children, their dependence on the doctor becomes a hurdle they must overcome. In this exclusive scene, we see just how attached Mounir is to the Doctor as he contemplates his future with Murielle.
“Our Children” opens in New York City on August 2nd, expanding to Los Angeles and other cities on August 9th. Watch below.
