Storyline

In Paris, Ismaél, a young Tunisian, cares for two brothers, Nouredine, a cripple, and streetwise Mouloud, 14. In haste, Ismaél and Mouloud go to Marseilles where an uncle lives. Nouredine has died in a fire, and Ismaél feels guilt on top of grief. Ismaél becomes friends with Jacky, a white man whose father and brother hate immigrants. Mouloud hangs out with cousin Rhida who breaks Islamic rules and deals hash. Ismaél decides Mouloud must return to Tunisia, but the boy runs off, becoming an acolyte to Rhida's supplier. Ismaél and Jacky's Arab girlfriend start an affair, friends betray friends, and the racism gets ugly. Can Ismaél rescue himself and Mouloud or will life in France crush them?

Not bad, but no Pixote
20 July 2004 | by (A Region Free World) – See all my reviews

I got this film for $1, and I was pretty happy since it was a pain for me to find (pre-ebay). I don't think it even came out on DVD either.

It's a story along the lines of Pixote or Salom Bombay. A story of a lower class boy who ends up involved in the streets amongst other things.

I would recommend people watch Salom Bombay and or Pixote before this film, but this is still a decent watch. I would't kill myself over it, as you're not going to see much in this film that wasn't done in the others, and the other did it better. If you're a fan of coming of age/street movies this would be nice. If not, you might want to avoid it
