Storyline

Fatima lives on her own with two daughters to support: 15-year old Souad, a teenager in revolt, and 18-year old Nesrine, who is starting medical school. Fatima speaks French poorly and is constantly frustrated by her daily interactions with her daughters. Her pride and joy, they are also a source of worry. To ensure the best possible future for them, she works odd hours as a cleaning woman. One day, she takes a fall on the stairs. On leave, Fatima begins to write to her daughters in Arabic that which she has never been able to express in French. Written by Alibi

Brilliant expose
10 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

I don't know if you have ever heard of Philippe Faucon, the film maker. He is purely french at one hundred percent but he is nevertheless highly concerned, involved with the Arabic, Algerian world. I have already seen all his movies and, believe me, they are all very interesting, because they draw an accurate and faithful painting of everything about the Arabic people, in France in particular, or during war in Algeria. This one makes no exception. You have here the story of the generation conflict that occurs between a forty years old lonesome mother of two teen daughters and her children. Both young girls who have many difficulties to follow their community rules in the European modern way of life.

A very interesting social piece of work.
