Before watching this one, I honestly never heard of it but since the ratings were pretty good, I thought I should give it a try. When I heard about the storyline, I thought it would be some kind of sport thriller like 'Rocky' but it was actually a heavy so... read more

Description: Bilal is 17 years old, a Kurdish boy from Iraq. He sets off on an adventure-filled journey across Europe. He wants to get to England to see his love who lives there. Bilal finally reaches Calais, but how do you cover 32 kilometers of the English Channel when you can't swim? The boy soon discovers that his trip won't be as easy as he imagined... The community of struggling illegal aliens in Calais is captured with authenticity, from the point of view of people who arrived there knowing nothing about France. This immigrant drama, with wonderful performances by the actors, is a strong story which uses documentary austerity and mini ... (more)

“Even though I don't live in France for already almost a decade (time goes by so fast!), I still like to watch a French movie from time to time. Before watching this one, I honestly never heard of it but since the ratings were pretty good, I thought I should give it a try. When I heard about the storyline, I thought it would be some kind of sport thriller like 'Rocky' but it was actually a heavy social drama but I didn't mind.
