One can say this film has no structure or style but I believe what Doillon hoped to achieve was to portray a story as realistically as he could. He cast children who actually lived in the French ghetto and as you can see, he didn't even change most of their names. In a way, Doillon is blending documentary and fiction.
What makes this movie so fascinating is that it is a glimpse into the world of impoverished young children and what their lives are like. In some ways, it shows how capable youth can be, which I find refreshing.
I highly recommend this film to: X those interested in contemporary society in France. If you followed the news about the riots in France last year, then you should see this film. X those interested in contemporary or French cinema X people who like foreign movies X people who want to see a movie that is a mix of genres
