POETICAL REFUGEE

FAUTE A VOLTAIRE (LA)

a film by :Abdellatif Kechiche

Like a wide-eyed innocent dreaming of Eldorado, Jallel lands in 3 where he hopes to make his fortune. From one encounter to the next, from hostels to immigrant aid societies, Jallel lives among the excluded and, while his dreams of success remain unrealised, he comes to discover and share the solidarity of the other outcasts.

French Synopsis :

Tel un Candide rêvant de l'Eldorado, Jallel débarque en 3 avec l'espoir de tenter sa chance. De rencontres en rencontres, de foyers en associations, Jallel va cheminer dans le Paris des exclus, et, faute de satisfaire ses espoirs de fortune, va découvrir et partager la solidarité des déshérités.
