| Your typical "North African illegal immigration to Europe" story
This French TV movie is yet another typical North African "illegal immigration to Europe story." Moreover, it's of the the tired Algerian/Tunisian migration saga to their mecca, France.

The difference between this one and the other ones is the sick cute kid, Louisa, in this case. But apart from her character, all the overworked personalities from the genre are in the film: the conniving thief offering expert advice to the "poor refugees", the corrupt officials, the heartless boat runner, Italian farmers exploiting cheap immigrant labor. In short, nothing you haven't seen before, if you're the sort of viewer attracted to this film in the first place.

For better takes on the genre, I recommend, just of the top of my head: "Loin", and "Exils" (not really the same, but with similar characters). At least this film offers some interesting views of Tunisia and its capital, Sicily and the Italian countryside as consolation.
