I wish I could direct this film!
13 July 2019 | by seeramuun5See all my reviews

Really the script and the design of the film is very nice. Rona Hartner was an amazing actress. Romain Duris and Ouassini Embarek also performed very well. The film has a fascinating structure. Social messages were impressive. The film's comedy was successful. Best movie I've seen this year! It should definitely be monitored.
