A genuine and often funny depiction of the relationships between monitors and children in a summer vacation camp. From romance to friendship, dancing to fighting, this French movie bring back good souvenirs of childhood.
There is a certain similarity between the main characters of this movie and another French production movie The Intouchables (2011). Ousmane (played by Omar Sy in this movie) as well as Driss from The Intouchables (2011), who portrayed a real life caretaker Abdel Sellou (played also by Omar Sy), have both grown up in very poor Paris' suburbs, they both share similar attitude towards authorities and have a taste of humor that is very much alike, though this is very probably unintentional and mainly caused by very distinct personality of Omar Sy.

This movie is an undisclosed little jewel. Of course you have to understand the context: separated by the "periph", the Urban Circular highway around Paris, are on one side well-off bourgeois people and on the other side the unemployed, drug trafficking young sons-of-Muslim-immigrants. Quite an opposition of style , language and criteria in life. And it goes the same with the cops trying to tame these worlds....one if well dressed white polite etc and the other one turns out to be black and speaking the french suburban slang... I liked very much this movie, and all my friends did, because its MUCH more than a cop-movie. Of course you have to be open-minded, and have some notion of the context , which obviously is not the case of the first comment writer.
