humorous portrayal and inside look of french sephardic culture
9 June 2003 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

I love this movie not because it is cinematically brilliant or for its plot line. The humor is excellent, there are so manyinside jokes that only a french sephardic jew would udnerstand, so it may seem uninteresting and cheesy to an american viewer. Whenever I am sad I watch this(and i've watched this at elast 10times) because the jokes are classic aswell as the characters. The movie shows how french and arabic culture intermingles with judaism to these jews whose parents have come from norh africa. It i a part of me (y mother is an algerian jew, a "pied noir" and it connects me to a side I cannot explain to my american friend. It is a culture that will soon be lost, because there are very few jews in northern africa after the french elft and the extremists control the countries. Overall: awesome and funny film
