A dark tale of working-class life in Marseilles, a city in crisis. Interesting characters include a hard-bitten but compassionate fish market worker with a drug addicted daughter and a moody bartender with a shocking secret life. Written by
An excellent movie about real life. Desperate life stories mixed with some uplifting details. Moving and real. You shouldn't watch it, tough, if you're in a bit of a depressive mood because the uplifting moments are rather far in between. The hopelessness of heroin drug-addiction is shown very powerfully. Maybe a tick too hopeless, though... Still, even though I wasn't in the best of moods when I watched it, I did enjoy the experience quite a lot.
