Miguel Ángel Silvestre,
I saw this eye-opening and superbly-told tale of the high cost of desire to move from Africa to Europe at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film director, Perrin, and lead actor who played Zola were present.
One word describes this for me: BEAUTIFUL! The story held tight with 3 views of the situation coming into a nexus of need and desperation, from the vacationing German in Spain to the Senegalese/Congo trying desperately to find refuge in Europe, to the office assigned to work on cases involving illegal immigration.
The characters lives are made richer by the further complications of the people in their lives who tug and pull at them, who mirror and reflect the protagonists' needs and pains, and who interweave plots, story, and visual stimulation with water, the sun, and the beach as images that make this a visually and emotionally interesting story, based in part on events that are happening now.
I enjoyed this movie very much and recommend it. Well done!
