Io, l'Altro, Mohsen Melliti, 2006


Giuseppe and Youssef are fishermen. Giuseppe is an Italian, while Youssef is an Arab. They work on the same boat and the two colleagues share everything, including their first name: Joseph. One day, Giuseppe hears a disturbing report on the ship's radio. The report is a warning about a suspected terrorist who happens to have the same name as Giuseppe's trusted partner: Yousef Ben Ali. Giuseppe suspects that he is being double-crossed by his once faithful friend. A cat-and-mouse game ensues, as the two try to outwit each other aboard the ship, alone in the middle of the sea.


This film is in Italian with English subtitles.
