Snow in Paradise

British editor Andrew Hulme made his writing and directing debut with this crime thriller. When a petty criminal's actions kills his best friend, his guilt drives him disillusioned which drives to find solace in Islam. Loosely based on the life of Martin Askew who makes a menacing appearance in the film, Hulme and Askew deliver a gritty film about life in a rough London neighborhood. Frederick Schmidt stars in his first leading role with a strong performance along with Askew, David Spinx and Aymen Hamdouchi. 1001 Films' coverage of the 67th Festival de Cannes.
