Upon reading the first review on IMDb I almost didn't go to see the movie and that would have been a shame. The film was very well acted, and the characters were well developed and entertaining. The story line supposedly follows the events surrounding an actual 1983 march against racism from Marseilles to Paris started by a group of friends from a public housing project in Lyon after one of them was shot by police. The marchers decry the racism and anti-immigrant violence prevalent in France at the time. It's a beautiful film and not at all simplistic in its portrayal of the authorities as all bad as was stated by the previous reviewer. I would definitely recommend seeing the movie if you get a chance; you'll feel good afterward. It's good as cinema, it's good entertainment, and it makes you feel good about humanity.
