Daniela Castillo Toro,
It was on TV late night. Although I missed big portions in the beginning of the movie, it was so intense I had to watch it again fully.
The movie is about an African immigrant living and working illegally in Belgium. He is given shelter and work by a; what i assume to be a trafficker of some sort. He has a friend also from Africa: Sioka who is ill and bedridden.
Things turn from bad to worse for our protagonist when his boss gets sick and tired of his friend Sioka laying around unproductive. The movie touches the hardship many illegals face, the rough life of being caught between the gray areas of society. Although in my opinion the ending didn't feel like one, I didn't really understand it. Thus for me, it wasn't really a satisfying one.
Yes, the soundtrack is fitting, I thoroughly enjoyed it . it wouldn't do you justice to explain it all in depth. I only recommend you to watch it and find out yourself.
This movie is that and more. I give it a 7/10
