In a poor Arab neighborhood, the nineteen years old Chimo lives alone with his mother and is a talented natural writer. His school teacher offers him the chance to study in Paris, inclusive with a letter of recommendation, but his mother can not afford and Chimo stays. His three best friends are completely losers and scoundrels. When the shy Chimo meets the gorgeous and sexy new-arrival in the ghetto Lila, who lives with a deranged aunt, his gross friend Mouloud falls for her. However, Chimo becomes close to Lila, who seduces him with her sexual games, telling him about her perverted sexual experience. The inexperienced Chimo falls in love for her, but he does not know how to declare his love for the girl. When Mouloud sneaks and listens to a private conversation between Lila and Chimo, he concludes that the girl is a whore, with tragic consequences. Written by

Refreshing and delightful - for people who appreciate subtle artistry in the portrayal of the sublunary
Refreshingly engaging film portraying identifiable characters that remind you of that exhilarating, uncertain time of life where the innocent torments and thrills of life are everything. (i.e. before we began relating vicariously to the super-hyped Hollywood glam-stud-whore superhero formula of most popular film.) This is a young, edgy, honest film for people who appreciate subtle artistry when portraying the human drama - sexuality, morality and culture. Giocante is sublime as a provocative, if naîve, beauty as she pursues the humble charm, honest good looks and integrity of Chimo, the object of her exploration.
Great soundtrack by Nitin Sawhney.
This one will come back and tickle you for days.
