What Kechiche provided: formal irrelevance and dramaturgical reverence. The film is nothing more than a sociological record, fictionally correct. Call it cinema is a convenience, since in reality the thought of a "modus operandi" is something that this kind of movies are distant. Remains the involvement of the actors, always the true value of it.
Nada complejo en la inagotable historia sobre el adolescente rebelde producto de una familia escindida que encuentra en algo (el graffiti) un medio de liberación, cura, expurgación de demonios, etc. Nada más qué decir.
