A scathing documentary about immigration in France
16 February 2000 | by ilona-2See all my reviews

In simple words, sometimes with a strong accent, sometimes in perfect French, North-African people describe their daily life at the time France had not enough workers for the industry and took on hands in North-African countries. Firstly the men, who arrived first and alone. Then the women, who were allowed to follow their men a few years later. Finally the children, most of them born in France.

As a French woman, I was really ashamed of what the French government and companies were able do at that time, treating human beings like cattle. Each French citizen should see this documentary as it belongs in the French history of the last decades, but is unfortunately "forgotten" in our history books at school.
