Synopsis

Macho, aggressive, full of bravado, and yet charming and charismatic – Lotfi seems to have it all: a successful business, a beautiful Frenchwoman on his arm, a baby on the way… and a past that all at once catches up with him. When “inheritance matters” suddenly take him from Marseille to his native Tunisia, Lotfi finds himself confronted with the legacy of the life he abandoned some seven years ago – which includes an estranged wife in a coma and Amr, their nine-year-old autistic son. With great compassion, Look at Me observes closely as Lotfi develops a tender relationship with the uncommunicative youngster who has become his ward, in the process determining the kind of man he wants to be.
