In 1965 in France, in a city slump, a poor Algerian father wants his son to be the best in school, although the boy is not very gifted. This is a pretty realistic movie about poverty and cultural minorities in France, or in any industrial country. Sometimes it's hard (the father spanks everybody, it's very dirty, old women doing prostitution, etc.) but it's a very well written. Algerians or Arabs actors seems amateurs, but they all doin' very well.
