Marginalized France
20 May 2002 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

There is a French Film festival running in Stockholm now and the common distributors are to be blamed, not letting us see many of these films before. "La faute à Voltaire" is about a Tunisian immigrant, cheating his way through the French bureaucracy, and a mental hospital, but finding solidarity and real friendship among people living in the poorest conditions of Paris of today.

There is a beautiful love story also. The immigrant at the hospital meets a disturbed "nymphomaniac" girl, very well played by Èloudie Bouchez, and starts a somewhat destructive but not altogether destructive relation with her.

This is very far from common American and common Swedish film indeed. It is about real people.
