Storyline

Clementine, detta Clim, e Bébé, immigrato di colore adottato da una famiglia francese, sono cresciuti insieme, fin da bambini, in un quartiere proletario di Marsiglia. Oggi Bébé ha diciotto anni e Clim sedici e sono innamorati. Entrambi sono figli di operai e, per giunta, lei è incinta. Situazione che viene accolta con sorpresa, ma anche con gioia dalle rispettive famiglie. Un brutto giorno, Bébé viene ingiustamente accusato di stupro da un poliziotto razzista che lo vuole incastrare e viene arrestato. A questo punto scatta la solidarietà delle famiglie dei due ragazzi che si prodigano per dimostrare la infondatezza dell'accusa (la madre di lei si reca a Sarajevo per parlare con la donna stuprata, che, in realtà, non è certa dell'identità del maniaco). Alla fine il ragazzo è scagionato dall'infamante accusa e potrà accogliere insieme a Clim ed ai congiunti il figlio che sta per arrivare. Written by rosebud6

Why doesn't Hollywood just give up?
6 April 2002 | by oaknetSee all my reviews

This film is excellent, both in the scale of its main story, and in the fine details. The place, the men, the women, and the light upon them are all overwhelming. The light on the women makes them more beautiful than Hollywood's best. The scenes of Paris and Sarjevo evidence of our creativity and destructiveness. Consider the moment when two women meet on the landing of a block of flats. One speaks only French, the other Bosnian - yet they fully understand each other. It is one of those moments that elevates cinema to the world of literature.
