The Other Son

Emmanuelle Devos, Jules Sitruk, Pascal Elbé, Lorraine Levy

Movie propaganda

As he is preparing to join the Israeli army for his national service, a blood test proves Joseph is not his parents' biological son. An investigation reveals he was inadvertently switched at birth with Yacine, the son of a Palestinian family from the West Bank, both having been born in Haifa during a missile attack in the Gulf War. The resulting confusion and subsequent revelation 17 years later turns the lives of the two families upside-down. Joseph is the son of privilege and a wealthy French-Jewish family, his father a colonel in the IDF. Studying to be a doctor, Yacine has recently returned from Paris, where he discovers the family and world he left is no longer the same. A touching deeply personal family drama, the filmmakers have steered clear of sentimentality or melodrama as each character is forced to reassess their respective identities, their values and their beliefs.
