French-Arab youth struggles to come of age in this prize-winning short film
21 May 1999 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

OPEN BODIES (Les Corps Ouverts) runs 47 minutes, and it's very worthwhile investing this short amount of to feel the human warmth of the main character, and those who surround him. Though the milieu and subject matter: the Maghreb male (North African) youth in Paris juggling a life full of contradictions, choices, and prejudices could not be more familiar to the average viewer attracted to this title, OPEN BODIES does offer fresh insight, to the subject, and makes one almost feel like one's peeking into this young guy's life.
