A very good script for this movie made by a French film director, a kind of French Len Loach, a social issues specialist, and especially immigration matters; Watch out for his other films. Daring subjects. Immigrants living in France, that's the red string of his films. A true realistic, poignant film indeed. I guess only a few professional actors were hired for this feature. That's its strength. It tell the tale of a born African immigrant who works in France in order to send money to his folks in Senegal. And he meets a French white female, divorced and mother of a teen daughter. You can guess all the problems both will have to deal with.
