just what i wanted to see on screen one day in my life
15 May 2006 | by (London,ENGLAND) – See all my reviews

I found this comedy just amazing, it does remind me a lot about my childhood and my Racine's. very proud also to be a french-Algerian, when i see this cocktail of French and Algerian actors working together in France and Algeria, (even the Morocco is represented). There is a lot in that movie where i can find myself on both country, i just will love to see more movie like this, if you know let me know.

Now about the movie, for me 1st beauty of the country, nice love story mix with some fears and laugh, i just had a good time watching that movie.( much better than others movie) By the way,if you got any information about the next movie from the same director, let me know please.

If you think to watch it just go for it
