Synopsis

Struggling for survival, two young West African immigrants work as performers in a cheap trattoria while balancing the bureaucratic demands and a band of violent smugglers. In need of money, they supplement their wages by selling drugs, but soon events spin out of control.

Our take

Powered by a deep empathy for the plight of African migrants in Europe, the Dardenne Brothers’ latest marvel fiercely condemns the commodification of human lives. In the face of state indifference and economic exploitation, two young souls light up the screen with their dreams of a better tomorrow.
