Storyline

At 17, Sonia almost left her family to go jihad. She was convinced that this was the only way for her and her family to go to heaven. She finally came back to reason. Unlike Mélanie, 16 years old, raised by her mother, she was a teenager with no history, who shared her life between school, her friends and her cello lessons. But on the Internet, she began to argue with a "prince" who managed to wash her brain. Filled with guilt for not having seen anything, the parents watch helplessly with the metamorphosis of their child. Written by lament

The sky will wait - Youth, attention to the obscure and ruthless world of internet ...
6 April 2017 | by thor2029See all my reviews

My opinion---

With Heaven waiting, we plunge into the pitiless universe of young, influential adolescents who drown in social networks and are projected into a universe full of illusions and manipulation. All these young teenagers who are influenced by all the obscure currents of the net. This movie shows us with all its brutality, how young teenagers fall into the radicalization of extreme religious movements, in order to get rid of everything, their brains are taken hostage without even realizing the Danger that threatens them. What director Marie-Castille Mention-Schaar signs her striking movie of truth, an essential movie, terrifying of realism, an uppercut in full face and facing this realism of our present society. One can also say that the interpretation of the two actresses: Noémie Merlant and Naomi Amarger interpreted their role with an impressive truth, that it was even cold in the back and gave this movie all the power to movie, facing these scourges And facing the strategies of recruitment of this youth so easily malleable. A movie showed in the middle school to precisely show all the terror that will follow after, to be trapped by these crazy terrorists without any scruple. A movie that raised my tension so much, I thought, is to say the strength of it. A movie really meditated on the future of a certain fragile youth. But I still end by force and presence in their respective roles of the two young teenagers, they really amazed me.
