Ziad Saad in A Perfect Day

A Perfect Day

2005 NR

Fifteen years after her husband left to serve in the Lebanese Civil War, Claudia (Julia Kassar) debates with her narcoleptic son, Malek (Ziad Saad), about whether it's time to have the patriarch declared legally dead. Meanwhile, Malek aims to reunite with his ex-girlfriend, Zeina (Alexandra Kahwagi). Postwar Beirut provides the lyrically haunting setting for this stirring drama, winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at Switzerland's Locarno Film Festival.
