Well, I found this movie really interesting. Don't watch it if you expect to see the magnificence of Marseille! The story is not far from reality. It shows how girls from north Africa struggle to get some freedom in their life; freedom that the parents didn't get as they grew up during the colonialism; freedom they didn't know how to define or spell as they didn't go to school. Anyway, I shared the same experience with those girls. Brought up in the land of freedom and lived as a bird in a cage. Life was a misery, and you are torn apart between the hunger for a slight freedom and the love for your family despite the psychological blackmail such as sending you back to Algeria if you dare to walk on the path beside the one dictated by your religion. See what the mother says to her daughter while she was living for the Uni. "Don't bring the shame on our family,... and we will be proud of you..." This movie shows how illegitimate the civil code is. Signed by the algerian government in the 80s', women became second rate citizens unable to go shopping without a permission or to argue.
