Foreign Language is the second short subject film created by Ack, No Ledge. Shot in various places in and around Montreal (Mile-End, NDG, the West Island, and North Hatley) it is an exploration of the universality of language, particularly, the language of the heart.

Watch the trailer here!

A film in five languages (English, French, German, Arabic, Greek) we shot the four, overlapping scenes over two weekends. The film stars Rakeen Saad, Patricia Manoussi, Lisa Serafino, Brian Degrace, Farah Jula Ateb, Anja Gorille, Alexia Jacquot, and Luke Powers. Raphael Levy edited the final product.


  • All four of the scenes were shot in locations belonging to members of the team and their families.
  • Patricia Manoussi (who plays the mother) once played Adam Kelly Morton’s mother in a stage comedy called Alan’s Search for the Best Girl in All of Montreal.
  • The languages chosen for the film were based on what the actors were able to speak.
