This is a riveting story about a friendship emerging between a 13-year-old Jewish boy, Momo, who is alone with his mournful and absent father, and an old Turkish grocer, Monsieur Ibrahim, who runs a business in Paris in the 60ies. Ibrahim enjoys life to the fullest and accepts the occurrences of life with an intense calmness, mentally and morally anchored in a liberal interpretation of the Koran. Momo views the world with glowing eyes, steals from Ibrahim’s shop and spends his savings on Sylvie, the prostitute. One day, Momo’s father decides to dissapear and leaves behind his only son. Ibrahim becomes the only adult in Momo’s life and together they commence a journey which will alter everything…Filmed with Omar Sharif as Ibrahim. The second part of the cycle “Cycle de l’invisible”.
