Monsieur Ibrahim et les Fleurs du Coran, a poignant history
Through a philosophic history, as humorous as it is profound, the public will discover the history of Momo, a young Jewish man of 12 years of age during the 60’s, who becomes friends with the Arabic grocer of the Rue Bleue. But appearances are deceiving and nothing is what it seems. The friendship tied to the Arabic grocer permits Momo to discover life, human relationships, religion, and other great principles.
