Déjà s'envole la fleur maigre Directed by Paul Meyer

Critics reviews

An oblique piece of magic social realism where the anthropological trauma of migrant labourers is seen and told through the eyes of their children. Unlike the emotional manipulation of neorealist revisionism, Meyer’s film utilizes non-professional actors with a respectful grace that is both moving and solemn.
