After Shabbat dinner, Ilan decided, against the advice of his mother, to go out and celebrate. He comforts his mother by kissing her as he heads out. Ruth Halimi will never see her son again…

In January of 2006 a beautiful young woman walks into a Parisian cellphone shop, looks around, and asks for the sales attendant’s number. Later, she calls asking to meet. Who could have known Ilan, the 23 year old man, was flirting with death? The next time his family hears from him is through a cryptic online message from kidnappers demanding ransom.

French director Alexandre Arcady delivers one of the most “wrenching and politically astute” films to come out of France (Screen Daily). Based on a book co-written by Ilan’s mother, Ruth Halimi, Arcady’s cinematic adaptation offers a searing insight into his vicious ordeal, the violent world of the gang of Barbarians, and the harrowing experience of his family waiting and hoping the Police would save their son. For 24 days the Police, insistent upon handling the case as a normal for-ransom kidnapping, fail to recognize the anti-Semitic hatred of his abductors. Many opportunities to save Ilan are missed or squandered as his family receive nearly 700 phone calls, insults, threats, photographs and sound recordings of their tortured son.

Captivating. A gripping drama, backed by a terrific cast, that remains engrossing until the end.

Brilliant. 24 Days re-opens fresh wounds triggered by French anti-Semitism. The gripping film–which speeds along like a fast-paced thriller–is based on true events.
