A Muslim teenager in a small Belgian town has been radicalized by his Imam despite the desperate protestations of his single mother, and winds up hatching a murderous plot targeting his beloved teacher.

MUBI's take

The Dardenne Brothers won the Best Director award at Cannes for this beautifully rendered character study, featuring an extraordinary performance from Idir Ben Addi. In line with their body of social realism, Young Ahmed is an empathetic look at the humanity behind a sensationalized subject.
