A good drama

I really like this actor Reda Kateb. I always enjoy his performances he gives us. Here, he plays a to be male nurse student who also works as a security guard to help him pay his bills. And, believe me, he has to face many problems, many struggles to emerge from his distress. A dark tale with no ending, as usual in french dramas. Not a true depressing movie, but not a very refreshing one too. The actual, true life of many folks living in the suburbs. I appreciate the lead's supervisor character. He seems very rude at fist sight but it appears that he helps our hero in his problems. Surprising for such a character. I love that.

Made by a female, which means with much sensibility. Many poignant sequences.
