Storyline

Set in France during the struggle for Algerian independence, Messaoud's mother is terminally ill and his father, needing to work long hours in the factory, can't look after him, so decides to put him and his older brother Abdel in foster care. Sent to the countryside, Abdel has to work on a farm, but Messaoud is taken in by a childless woman, who conceals his Arab origins from her fiercely Gaullist ex-army husband. Re-named Michel/Michou, and with his hair comically dyed blond, the young boy quickly steals the hearts of both foster-parents, and eventually is instrumental in saving their troubled marriage. Written by Graham Inglis

So so
21 May 2019 | by franbelle10See all my reviews

Oscillating between comedy and politically correct lesson of morality, this film does not find its public. Depardieu's game is impeccable, but that is not enough to save the whole film, dripping with predictability and syrupy cliches. Disappointing
