That's exactly the kind of films I am very fond of. Not a masterpiece, I warn you. Only a feature about nostalgia, old timers vs new generation, a topic already told before in many movies. But I don't care. Its a sort of poor man's CARLITO'S WAY, in the french manner. Olivier Marchal plays here an ex con just released from the can who comes back to his childhood district. Menilmontant district, in Paris, but not as known as Montmartre or Pigalle. Our lead finds out that everything around him collapses, everything has changed and not in the best way...A tale about friendship, true feelings, a tale that grabs you. A touching, poignant story, enhanced by a good directing and above all a true powerful editing. Here, many characters have their faiths meet. Very interesting. Some good action sequences not for the squeamish either. This film reminds me UN PRINTEMPS A Paris, made in 2006.
