Made in France by Nicolas Boukhrief (France, 2015, 89 min.). DCP.
Filmed before the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris last January, Made in France follows a freelance journalist named Sam (Malik Zidi) as he investigates the growing phenomenon of disaffected youth joining Islamic extremist groups. Sam infiltrates a group of four young jihadis whose mission is to destabilize the city center of Paris. Peter Debruge of Variety notes that “despite its unsettling subject matter, Nicolas Boukhrief’s thriller is neither exploitation movie nor anarchist cookbook, but rather a thoughtful and sobering ‘what if’ scenario of home-grown, domestically targeted terrorism.”
