Charming and subtle; a fabric woven from childhood memories.
“Monsieur Ibrahim”

I’d read some user comments and external reviews; the view of some that it’s anti-Semitic almost made me skip it. However, unless you’d see the sympathetic portrayal of a Muslim man (Ibrahim/Sharif) as being anti-Semitic, it’s unlikely you’ll be bothered.

I don’t know what the thrust of the book is, but movies rarely literally translate books; the book may suggest but the film moves in its own direction — even, at times, contrarily.

This film reminded me a great deal of “Le mari de la coiffeuse/The Hair Dresser’s Husband”) directed and co-written by Patrice Leconte. That film also has a coming of age boy; getting haircuts, he’s enthralled at having his head pressed against the bosom of his female barber. When his father questions his son about what he wishes to do when he’s grown up and is displeased with the answer, he sends him to bed without his supper. The rest of the film (without any clear transition) deals with the boy’s fantasy about someday marrying a lady barber and what their life would be like. It’s a realistic portrayal of an adolescent boy’s fantasy.

On the surface this film recounts the development of a mutually satisfying father-son type relationship that develops between a Turkish shopkeeper and a coming of age boy (MoMO/Boulanger) who is Jewish, by the way.

I say “on the surface” because most films try to tell a story in a way that we experience, see and live the story from a fly on the wall perspective.

Ahh-h, but not THIS film.

While you COULD view it that way, it’s really far better understood if viewed from a different perspective.

Let’s say you wandered in to the shop on this Parisian street one afternoon and heard the owner called “the Arab.” You wonder why and also how he got into this particular trade. You start asking and he starts telling you the story of his life.

And that’s what this movie tells us — HIS version of HIS story as experienced through HIS eyes and ears growing up. So it’s a realistic portrayal of that collection of childhood memories, assumptions, distortions, and causes.

As a child, do we see things the way we’d see them as an adult? Never, and so it is with this version. Everything is somewhat overdrawn, not quite a caricature but somewhat that way. All the streetwalkers are attractive, 21-31 years old, well dressed, and kind. None middle-aged, trashy, disturbed, or predatory. As we recount the story of our lives, we frequently expand the highs and lows and are liberal in delegating blame to those who disappoint us as well as credit to those who serve as heroes. And that’s what this movie does.

Seen from this frame of reference, not all events make logical sense. So we never know for sure what happened to his father, or mother, or brother. We have his sometimes conflicting memories and versions, his suppositions that substitute for reality and which leave us wondering, “Golly, I wonder what really happened?”

Some things, of course, we’ll never know. But it was fun finding out what we did. We had an interesting afternoon with the guy and he had a remarkable story to tell.

One of the best pictures of all time? No. But a thoroughly entertaining one most especially for those of us interested in family dynamics.

Review By: Bob Pr.
okay movie with unusual sensibilities
The first half of the movie was not especially compelling–especially since so much of this concerns a very young appearing 16 year-old boy and his experiences in procuring prostitutes. While this may or may not bother the sensibilities of French audiences, I found it awfully sleazy and unengaging. The kid appeared about 13 or 14 and scenes such as him breaking open his piggy bank to get enough for a trick were quite strange.

The second half of the movie, in contrast, was a sweet and engaging story about the young man and his relationship with a shopkeeper (Omar Sharif). When the boy’s father dies, Sharif adopts the boy and takes him on a long road trip to his homeland of Turkey. The acting is good and the story unusual enough that it is worth a look.
