'Yomeddine' is becoming an international hit.

“Yomeddine”, the Egyptian character drama about a leper and an orphan boy on a journey in search of family, which is Egypt's official nomination for the 2019 Oscars, has won the Reflet d’Or for best feature film at the 24th Geneva International Film Festival on Saturday.

Directed by Egyptian-Austrian A.B. Shawky, the film premiered in competition in Cannes where it won the Francois Chalais Prize and is Egypt’s candidate for the foreign-language Oscar. It was also screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival last August and the BFI London Film Festival in October.

“Yomeddine” has gotten rave reviews so far, with Variety describing it as a “lovingly-made, character-driven road-trip movie that occasionally dips into sentimentality yet has moments that honestly play on the heartstrings.”
