Adel Bencherif, né le 30 mai 1975 à Saint-Maurice dans le Val-de-Marne, est un acteur français.

Biography

Adel Bencherif a passé son enfance et son adolescence à Grenoble dans le quartier de la Villeneuve. Balloté d’internats en foyers, il décide à vingt ans, de partir tenter sa chance à Paris où il suit une formation d’acteur à l'atelier de Damien Acoca.

Sa carrière débute par une apparition dans le court métrage Tarubi, l'Arabe Strait 2 du collectif Kourtrajmé. Il enchaîne les petits rôles à la télévision et au cinéma avant de croiser le chemin de Jacques Audiard qui l’emploie dans Un prophète. Il y est Ryad, le jeune prisonnier atteint d’un cancer qui se lie d’amitié avec Malik, le héros du film interprété par Tahar Rahim, en lui apprenant à lire. Une interprétation qui lui vaut une nomination à la 35e cérémonie des César, catégorie meilleur espoir masculin.

Dès lors, il enchaîne les rôles. Pour le grand écran, il est au générique notamment de Des hommes et des dieux de Xavier Beauvois, À bout portant de Fred Cavayé, Rock the Casbah de Laïla Marrakchi, Bodybuilder de Roschdy Zem ou Les Gorilles de Tristan Aurouet.

En 2013, il est l'acteur principal du court métrage La Fugue de Jean-Bernard Marlin où son personnage d’éducateur autoritaire et bienveillant lui permet de gagner plusieurs prix d’interprétation. Cette fiction décroche aussi le prestigieux Ours d'or à la Berlinale 2013 et une nomination à la 39e cérémonie des César.

En 2015, il apparaît dans le James Bond 007 Spectre de Sam Mendes et tourne peu après dans La Chute de Londres (London Has Fallen) de Babak Najafi.

The story picks up in London, where the British Prime Minister has died under mysterious circumstances and his funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the Western world. What starts out as the most protected event on Earth turns into a deadly plot to kill the world's most powerful leaders and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The only hope of stopping it rests on the shoulders of the U.S. President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart), his formidable Secret Service lead agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), and a British MI6 agent (Charlotte Riley) who rightly trusts no one.

The film opens with a quotation from the Book of Psalms, Psalm 82:6–7: "I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes." The monks' peaceful routine of prayer, medical assistance, and community interaction is soon interrupted by the threat of an Islamic fundamentalist group. When their elected leader, Christian (Lambert Wilson), declines the protection of the corrupt civil authority, the monks divide amongst themselves on the question of whether to stay or flee Algeria. Before a decision is reached, a group of fundamentalists, led by Ali Fayattia, enters the monks' compound in force on Christmas Eve and demands their doctor and his medical supplies. Christian refuses their requests and cites the Quran as proof of the monks' goodwill. With a mixture of surprise and respect, Fayattia leaves the compound and grants it his protection until his capture, torture and death at the hands of government forces. Despite the growing danger, the monks come to consensus on the moral importance of maintaining their committed lives with, and ministry to, the local population, even when faced with violence and death. Ultimately, the terrorists seize most of the monks during a nighttime raid and hold them hostage. As the captive monks trudge a snowy path towards a grim fate, the film concludes with the spiritual testament of prior Christian de Chergé, bravely written in the face of death.
