Description

After being jailed for committing a violent crime, Zain, a mistreated 12-year-old boy, sues his parents for giving him life. Zain’s large family live hand to mouth in a squalid apartment in Lebanon. The kids work instead of going to school. When Zain’s 11 year old sister is sold into marriage, he flees the family home in search of a better life. He is taken in and lovingly cared for by an illegal Ethiopian worker, Rahil, who lives in a shanty house with her baby. But when Rahil disappears, Zain is suddenly left to fend for himself and her baby, resorting to increasingly desperate measures to survive. Director Nadine Labaki (Where Do We Go Now?) cast non-professional actors from displaced backgrounds similar to their characters, resulting in authentic and extraordinary performances.

Capernaum (Capharnaüm) Reviews

  • “It's essential viewing for the ways in which it illuminates brutally hard lives many of us could otherwise not imagine, and for the craft of its nonprofessional performers.” – Andrea Gronvall , Chicago Reader March 1, 2019
  • “Jail and courtroom scenes, at the beginning and end, may be a tad implausible, not to mention scrappy. But the middle section, mostly shot on handheld cameras on the streets of Beirut, is breathtaking, topical, hilarious, tender and brutal.” – Charlotte O'Sullivan

, London Evening

  • “It's harsh and abrasive, and sometimes difficult…but Labaki has layered the film with just enough moments of kindness to break your heart.” – Kevin Maher , Times (UK)
  • “Co-writer and director Nadine Labaki shoots "Capernaum” with a fluent, documentary-like realism." – Adam Graham, Detroit News
