A social drama
23 May 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

The Dardenne brothers linger, during 90 minutes, to a subject as cleaving as delicate. Although the atmosphere is neat, the psychology of the characters is not elaborate enough. Thus, the character of Ahmed interpreted by Idir Ben Addi is definitely not credible: he looks like a harmless kid with a baby face. I can not believe such a child can fool adults so easily. As a matter of fact, the film is essentially based on this character who might then be considered as the keystone of a cinematographic structure. This keystone being defective, the structure collapses! Moreover, the rhythm of the film is a bit sluggish, even if this feeling is possibly due my lack of interest for the film. In short: disappointing!
