A unique composite of scripted scenes, documentary footage and improvised travelogue, Je veux voir follows Catherine Deneuve on a road trip from Beirut, where the famous actress is visiting for a gala just months after the bombings in July 2006. She is guided by the Leabanese actor Rabih Mroue, who grew up in this war-torn region. The initial uneasiness of being trapped in a car with a near-stranger gives way to polite curiosity and finally, as the landscape bears its scars, intimacy.
