Cool Abdoul (2021)


Directed by Jonas Baeckeland. Drama. Dur 1hr 52 mins.


Ismail Abdoul is a talented young boxer, ready to make it to the top. He’s found the love of his life, Sylvie, and is making a decent living as a bouncer. But when the opportunity for more money and power arises, he seizes it. In no time, he and his men control all the club doors in the city, including the drug traffic behind them. Abdoul becomes a living legend, both in the ring and out of it. Blinded by success, he gets caught in a web of his own lies and violent actions and is forced to fight the ultimate match: against himself.
