Storyline

Dris is an ex-con, living in the borderline between a decent and a criminal life. He has a regular and simple work and lives a simple life with his wife Lise and loves his family. However, his childhood friends from his Arab community, including his best friend Yanis, are mobsters and his brother is a small time delinquent. Yanis tries to bring Dris back to his gang, and uses his former lover Nina to seduce him, taking him to expensive places to feel the importance of big money. Dris fights against the temptation, but an event will route him back to Yanis' gang and in a fight between gangs with tragic consequences for the whole community.

A good movie.
7 November 2006 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

The story of a part of life between two friends in Paris. Boot come from outside the central of Paris, they come from the poor part, the difficult part, a city nearest Paris. They growth together and they start to steel motorbikes together. After four years in jail, the first man wants to stop definitely to live has a bandit and he wants to find the right way of live. A story where the gangs try to get more and more money and respect. The men want to get money quickly as possible and tray to follow they dreams and they illusions. A nice movie, may be nearest the reality of gangs. The presence of women stay outside the main history, near doesn't exist. Good presence of very good french actors and also the second job actors. A nice picture anyways and a very good screen-player. A movie to watch absolutely.Good Bibi.
