A contemporary classic
27 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my all time favorites. It has a quirky charm that belies its deeper exploration of economic and ethnic prejudice, and portrays three people's hard journey through modern France's social system on their way to being an oddball kind of family. Kassovitz does a marvelous turn as both star and director, creating both sympathy and disgust for both male protagonists as they wend their way through a truly comic and complicated emotional roller-coaster. It's one of the few movies that treats a love triangle with a compassionate eye, without becoming mawkishly sentimental or overly clinical.

Its worth a look, esp. if you like Beineix or Jeunet
