This movie was France’s admission for the Oscar for best Foreign Language film in 2010, but it was not meant to be. Other film festivals did know how to value it. For instance, it received the Grand Prize of the Jury at the Cannes Festival and it also won a BAFTA Award. The film tells the tale of a young French-Arabic boy, who goes to prison. He has been to a Juvenal prison before, but this is something more daunting. To his own surprise he grows out to be a central and respectable figure taking charge of the prison. Not just inside the prison, but also outside.
