Outstanding film about media and multiculturalism
25 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Coming out of the woodwork to write my first review on here, for a local movie. I am from Belgium but I rarely watch Belgian films. When I do, I rarely like them. But this is an exception. This film, in my opinion is exceptional, at least for Belgian cinema.

It's a critical piece about the way people from Maghreb countries are represented in Belgian media. The first scene pulls you in and never lets go. It is enthralling, moving and sometimes painful to watch. This film makes a point, an important point. It doesn't make it subtly, but clearly and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I hope people get to view it and leave the cinema with their thoughts provoked and eyes opened.
