Sira, a former refugee, works as a translator for OFPRA (the French Office for the Protection of Stateless Persons and Migrants). She unscrupulously fleeces her clients, selling them fictions she creates to convince the authorities.
Following a long prison term, 30 year-old Céline must find a place in society. Hiding her past, she introduces herself with a new identity to get work for a trial period in a hotel. Céline finds herself endlessly walking a tightrope between truth and fiction. When she meets Idir, despite the threat of being unmasked, Céline falls in love and finds herself a prisoner to her own lies. But how can one live without taking risks?Written by
Laura Smet gives a very convincing performance in this role, this realistic character. A little social drama gem that could have been released in theaters. The scheme could make audiences think of José Giovanni's DEUX HOMMES DANS LA VILLE or its remake from 2014 starring Forrest Whitaker. You are literally glued to this story, so poignant and sensitive and sad too. I hope many people could see this feature really worth watching. Really. I mean it. How can't we feel empathy for this character, despite the fact that she committed a crime. ARTE channel produces good stuff, far from TF1 crap channel craps for the common housewives audiences.
