Feel Good Movie...!!
28 March 2018 | by SameirAliSee all my reviews

December 7, 2017. Gala Screening, 14th Dubai International Film Festival.

The film was screened with the Director Rachid Hami and actor Samir Guesmi. The story happens in France, in a school for the immigrants. The school is basically divided into two parts; one for basic education and other for music. Music class was a place to keep the untamed kids, no one really cared about them. Then, arrives the new violin teacher. He was a silent, introvert person shocked to see the careless, foul mouthed kids. He tried his best to bring the students into his way, when it was not possible, he tried to go to the student's way.

The film travels sometimes in the proper cliche, but sometimes the other way. Though very predictable, it's a very sweet, light and beautiful movie to watch.
