Storyline

Wael (Kheiron) a former street child, makes a living from small scams with his adoptive mother and partner-in-crime Monique (Catherine Deneuve). When this unconventional duo swindles the wrong guy, Victor (André Dussollier), an old acquaintance of Monique now in charge of a support organization for troubled teens, they have no choice but to become his interim secretary and educator in order to redeem themselves. Facing six willful kids determined to spoil all his efforts, Wael's own personal story and inventive tricks become the key to gaining their trust - and he soon realizes that he too is given a chance to heal his past and find his place in society.

Trivia

To find the six teenagers, Kheiron appealed to Adelaïde Mauvernay, casting director. His first instruction was that he did not want actors, but teens from the "real life". Suddenly, they first considered a wild cast that proved to be a process too long, complicated to implement and inefficient because the roles of the little ones are very technical for non-comedians.

Simple movie, intelligent
23 December 2018 | by federica-94902See all my reviews

Very french, slightly impossible. romantic plot but enjoyable and well made. Decent movie, lacks a little of realism and specifics in the story but then again it doesn't aim to be that kind of movie. Overall delivers his message well.
