Bahia Benmahmoud, a free-spirited young woman, has a particular way of seeing political engagement, as she doesn't hesitate to sleep with those who don't agree with her to convert them to her cause - which is a lot of people, as all right-leaning people are concerned. Generally, it works pretty well. Until the day she meets Arthur Martin, a discreet forty-something who doesn't like taking risks. She imagines that with a name like that, he's got to be slightly fascist. But names are deceitful and appearances deceiving...Written by

I just love the way the directors have knitted such a twisted tale of racial intolerance and prejudices and yet without offending anyone baffles me. A perfect blend of humour and pathos, wonderfully acted this film had me hooked from start to finish, it made me laugh out loud and yet made me think of the way I perceive different races and religions. Sadly only the French could make a film of this quality. it could be possible in my opinion to compare this to Welcome To Dongmakol another excellent film which looks at the stupid belligerent attitude of countries and it's peoples, the pointlessness of hatred and inbred prejudices. Wonderful film which I thoughtfully enjoyed.10/10
