In this french film, social worker Amar (Roschdy Zem) is in charge of six small-time criminals (most of them immigrants, and including a white convert to Islam) whose only option for staying out of prison is to serve a month doing volunteer work in a small french village. Most of the all-white rural town don't want anything to do with them, with the exception of Anais (the lovely Julie Delarme) who lives with her father and her slightly retarded younger brother Leo. The movie shows how the group clash with the other villagers, and eventually repair mends with most of them (though never entirely). Although this is not a drama, I found in fact the movie quite poignant in showing the difficulties that France is facing (and will increasingly face) in integrating its rapidly growing immigrant population. The movie tries to put a somewhat optimistic face to this problem, but it ends up showing that there is little hope of finding a common ground between the immigrant and native population of France. Shot like a commercial comedy (in a fish out of water style), it's hard not to feel sad after watching it for the future of France.
