Elie Wajeman, 2012
France | French with English subtitles | 90 minutes
Alex desperately wants to move to Israel, scraping together money dealing drugs to get himself there and invest in his cousin’s restaurant, while keeping his brother out of trouble and kibitzing with his large extended family on the gritty streets of Northeast Paris. Auteur-in-the-making Elie Wajeman’s stylish and brooding drama deftly draws out this story of a young man caught between family ties and his dream of a better life.
