Biography

Mesquida wanted to go to Art School (the Beaux-Arts) but finally abandoned the idea to pursue her career in acting. She is still passionate about the Arts and often visits museums. Her favorite painting is The Scream by Norwegian expressionist painter Edvard Munch.

She is known for being an avid movie-goer (she watches about 400 movies a year) and for choosing her movies very carefully. Among her favorite movies are Béla Tarr's Sátántangó, Carlos Reygadas's Silent Light, Claire Denis's Beau Travail (Good Work), Bruno Dumont's Humanité (Humanity) and Abdellatif Kechiche's Black Venus.

Following her collaboration with Quentin Dupieux, a.k.a. Mr. Oizo, and Gaspard Augé from Justice (band) on Rubber, Mesquida started DJing with American rapper MDNA in Fashion events.

She lives in Charlie Chaplin's former house in West Hollywood.

Mesquida is currently writing a book with her mother.

Réda (Nicolas Cazalé) is a French-Moroccan teenager due to sit for Baccalauréat. When his devout father (played by Mohamed Majd) asks Réda to accompany him on a pilgrimage to Mecca, he reluctantly agrees. However, the father insists that they travel by car. As both embark on a road trip thousands of kilometres away from southern France, the once-icy father-and-son relationship starts to thaw as both gradually come to know each other. Réda speaks only in French to his father, who is seen speaking only Arabic for the majority of the film. Later, when necessary, the father proves that he in fact speaks impeccable French; his choice to speak only Arabic to his son is therefore purposeful.
