Uninvolving look at troubled French youth
19 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was available for streaming off Netflix so I thought I'd give it a try. This film follows a group of poor preteens whose entire world essentially revolves around their rundown government-assisted apartments, the corridors of their housing project, and the local, derelict "park." There isn't much of a plot because the purpose of the film seems more to be just an opportunity to show endangered children floundering in a world without proper supervision, role models, education, etc. But the film flounders due to a poor script and mediocre acting. None of the characters are fleshed out and some of the child actors, in particular the young female lead, lack the natural charisma and acting ability to convey both a sense of vulnerability and toughness. None of the characters are very sympathetic and there's not one mature,responsible adult in the entire film. Having said that, the film was interesting as a depiction of life for children in the downtrodden, poor areas of France's larger cities. As they lack any sense of morality and readily lie, cheat, and steal (from themselves and strangers!), their depiction should cause any right thinking, decent human being to be very afraid of the future.
