Interesting movie set in Algeria
8 April 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

The thing that I liked the most about this film is where the action takes place. We get to see Algiers, the capital of Algeria. I, for one, was fascinated by the scenery and the people. The movie in itself is not bad. It's not that good either. There's a few good laughs, some kind of commentary on immigration and emigration. The acting is solid. Samy Naceri and Faudel are both doing a good job. Beautiful Julie Gayet is credible.

Seen in Toronto, at the Royal Cinema, during Cinéfranco, on April 8th, 2006.

75/100 (**½)
