A touching portrayal of inner-city kids glimpsing another side of life.
This film believably portrayed the mix of intrigue and confusion in a group of teenage boys as they discover a very different side of France to the life they know in an inner-city melting pot. Their laughter and squabbles recalled youthful trips of my own. It also handled sensitively the attraction between one of the boys, a Muslim, and a middle-class Jewish girl. All in all, a fine display.
