Way better it's IMDB rating (5.8) would suggest
19 March 2020 | by johnpierrepatrickSee all my reviews

We have here a realist drama, taking place in North of France, in a poor place, with high unemployment. Of course it makes us think to the Dardenne movies, and some bad imitations.

It has indeed similarities - the set-up, the use of comedians that does look like real people (using Louise Bourgoin for her talent, not her sexyness - not to forget Anne Benoît, always wonderful and underused in French cinema if you look only at her talent), and a care of any details to be realistic. Plus of course, the question "How far you're ready to go to survive in our world when you're part of the outcasts".

There are some differences as well, with a darker movie I would say, a certain roughness that definitely fit this story.

All considered, this is a really good movie, I would have gone for a 8 if not for some weaknesses in the plot story.
