The Secret of the Grain

Born in Tunisia, Abdellatif Kechiche arrived in Nice with his parents at the age of 6. Passionate about theater; he studied drama at the Conservatoire d'Antibes.

In film, he got the lead rolein Mint Tea by Abdelkrim Bahloul, where he plays a young Algerian immigrant sentenced to life for petty theft.

André Téchiné hired him in 1987 in Dreamers where he plays a gigolo with Sandrine Bonnaire and Jean-Claude Brialy. With Bezness by Nouri Bouzid, he won the Best Actor of the Festival of Namur in 1992.

 All these qualities earned him the Golden Lion for Best First Film at the Venice Film Festival in 20001.

Kechiche  then directed in 2006 The Secret of the Grain that evokes the journey of a manual laborer of North African origin who wishes to retrain inthe restaurant business in the port in Sète.

The filmmaker has again demonstrated his talent as a painter of everyday kindness and as a storyteller. He received a hero's welcome in Venice where he was awarded the Grand Jury Prize.
After obtaining the Prix Louis-Delluc 2007, The Secret of the Grain won indeed the same four statuettes as The Dodge, three years before.
