A dark but clear look.
Using yesterday's memories to talk about today's life. Surprising !
Outstanding! A tremendous as well as educative piece.
Le Canard Enchaîné:
Med Hondo is controlling strength and sweetness in his movies like Baudelaire in his writings.
L'Officiel des Spectacles:
The film talks about a painful matter but with a strong faith in human being.
Hondo who is obviously takes social injustices personally, tackles the legacy of slavery and colonialism along with the extreme, rightwing attitudes bred by unemployment.
