Fatima vit seule avec ses deux filles : Souad, 15 ans, adolescente en révolte, et Nesrine, 18 ans, qui commence des études de médecine. Fatima maîtrise mal le français et le vit comme une frustration dans ses rapports quotidiens avec ses filles. Toutes deux sont sa fierté, son moteur, son inquiétude aussi. Afin de leur offrir le meilleur avenir possible Fatima travaille comme femme de ménage avec des horaires décalés. Un jour elle chute dans un escalier. En arrêt de travail, Fatima se met à écrire en arabe ce qu'il ne lui a pas été possible de dire jusque-là en français à ses filles.

An excellent COUNTERPOINT to all the movies about aimless/underemployed and radicalized Muslim men/boys. As a matter fact, this director's previous film was exactly that, but he felt compelled to do a story about the silent majority, the women, here a janitor and her two French-born daughters. How many suicide bombers were men, and how many were women? Maybe the men were promised whirgins (trying to fool Bibliocommons' Al-Gorerithm here, ha!) and not the women?

A very moving film about an Algerian family in France. The single mother works incredibly hard to help her daughters achieve success. There are many struggles along the way. Helps you to appreciate the immigrant experience. Very worthwhile.
