Polleke is an ordinary 11 year old girl, wich makes her life and thoughts so extraordinary
31 December 2003 | by SillysilSee all my reviews

Polleke is an ordinary 11 year old girl raised by her single mom and always defending her drug-addicted dad. She wants to be a poet and is in love with Mimoun, a Maroccan boy in her class, with Africa eyes.

Take the time to see this film and you won't regret it: It's funny, moving and full of great characters and even greater dialogue. It's a love story, a coming of age story, a feel good movie and an educational one. My favorite film this year!
