Synopsis

In 1993 Paris, a French Algerian teenager falls for a new classmate, only to realize for the first time how restrictive the rules of her patriarchal family are. As the terror of fundamentalism emerges in her homeland and her family crumbles, she explores the powers and dangers of her own desire.

Our take

Featuring a sparkling color palette and a sensual soundscape, Kamir Aïnouz’s vibrant debut simmers with the heady yet confusing desires that come with one’s sexual awakening. Paralleling the personal with the political, the film probes the contradictions of a multicultural upbringing in 1990s Paris.
