However, his childhood friends from his Arab community, including his best friend Yanis, are mobsters and his brother is a small time delinquent. Yanis tries to bring Dris back to his gang, and uses his former lover Nina to seduce him, taking him to expensive places to feel the importance of big money. Dris fights against the temptation, but an event will route him back to Yanis' gang and in a fight between gangs with tragic consequences for the whole community.

Just the music score
29 May 2003 | by indeusSee all my reviews

No actors, no script, no director, no movie. Naceri is a typically good boy. Perfect for Taxi, but not for this movie. Since, he is the worst actor in this movie. His _character_ is a mad, fanatic criminal offender, but he can't show us. The one good thing in the movie: the music score. Otherwise the worst movie that I had been ever see.
