Mildly interesting but dreary
17 July 2004 | by (Salem, Oregon) – See all my reviews

This film gives a brief glimpse of yet another dysfunctional family, this one from Algeria and living with France. But although there's a great deal of sadness, it's hard to feel sorry for anyone -- not the abusive brother or the unloving father, not the mother who cares more for what the men think than what her daughters feel, and not even for the girls themselves, who seem to think "freedom" means dressing like tramps, sulking and mouthing off to everyone. If this is even a partially accurate look at the Muslim community in France, then it might rate a star or two for "documentary interest," but it goes absolutely nowhere and when it ends you wish you could have your 90 minutes back.

By the way, as someone else mentioned, the white subtitles are nearly unreadable.
