I truly love this film that really was emotionally charged and so engaging for me as a viewer. It compellingly talks about immigration, identity, and the importance of family. Seyna is a young girl who dreams of acquiring the french citizenship even though her father is strongly opposed to it and she'll do anything she can in order to finally become french. This story is just so powerful, and Seyna is simply very touching because we feel how torn she is between her two identities. I really liked the main actress who is extremely talented.
When it comes to directing it's also truly remarkable. It's beautifully shot and very cinematic. I was even more impressed that it is the director's first film.
In short, it's a brilliant first film which is well worth seeing.
