neorealist view of shantytown in 1960's France
20 December 1999 | by (Pittsburgh) – See all my reviews

Living in a slum of huts made with corrugated metal and salvaged bricks, mortar, and wood panels, a group of algerian family immigrants in mid-sixties France are shown as through the eyes of a young boy growing up. The story is based on the experiences of a now well-established writer and journalist. The adult men have constructions jobs, and the adult women spend most of the time in the camp preparing food, doing laundry, cleaning up. The kids do what kids like to do, and often get in trouble. The story is presented in a straight forward manner, chronologically, and without much creativity. The style is somewhat like Neo-realism. For a different style, somewhat more creative and profound in content as well about a group of people living in a shantytown, see "I Brutti, Sporchi, e Cattivi" of Ettore Scola.
