The Repentant

When Algeria enacts a law that provides amnesty to rebels who lay down their arms, Rashid, a jihadist fighter, leaves his hideout in the mountains, rejects violence and returns home. He gets a job at a café and begins to reintegrate into society, but when a pharmacist acquaintance asks Rashid to reveal secrets about his family, his life takes an unforgettable and emotional turn. The film won the Europa Cinema Award, Cannes 2012 and the Chicago International Filmfestival 2012: Silver Hugo.
