Clementine, detta Clim, e Bébé, immigrato di colore adottato da una famiglia francese, sono cresciuti insieme, fin da bambini, in un quartiere proletario di Marsiglia. Oggi Bébé ha diciotto anni e Clim sedici e sono innamorati. Entrambi sono figli di operai e, per giunta, lei è incinta. Situazione che viene accolta con sorpresa, ma anche con gioia dalle rispettive famiglie. Un brutto giorno, Bébé viene ingiustamente accusato di stupro da un poliziotto razzista che lo vuole incastrare e viene arrestato. A questo punto scatta la solidarietà delle famiglie dei due ragazzi che si prodigano per dimostrare la infondatezza dell'accusa (la madre di lei si reca a Sarajevo per parlare con la donna stuprata, che, in realtà, non è certa dell'identità del maniaco). Alla fine il ragazzo è scagionato dall'infamante accusa e potrà accogliere insieme a Clim ed ai congiunti il figlio che sta per arrivare. Written by rosebud6

A remarkable film with a singular taste.
13 July 1999 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

They've been more than friends since that nail accidentally injured Bebe during their infancy. Clim (Clementine) and Bebe grown together. Inspired by the devotion of his mother he decided be sculptor. The immense love between them is more important than any racism prejudge and were constructing their lives like the usual young couples, unfortunately a policeman involved to Bebe into a crime against a tourist but the love and support of their parents that don't know limits through the adversities give to this film a singular taste.
