A finely observed nocturnal odyssey set in the wake of the 2016 Brussels bombings, Bas Devos’s third feature beholds the quotidian drama of an immigrant’s experience in Belgium with a hushed but deeply expressive intensity, viewed in long takes and vivid 16mm detail. After work one night, Khadija (Saadia Bentaïeb), a cleaning woman of North African origins, falls asleep on the last subway train and wakes up at the end of the line with no choice but to make her way across the city on foot. While friendly encounters and vaguely portentous events proliferate around Khadija, the film gives way to her curiosity of the city and its multicultural spaces with remarkable tenderness and compassion. A Cinema Guild release.
