Crime drama, Drama
In this grim rite-of-passage drama, set in the French industrial town of Creil, an 18-year-old Romany boy must choose between the evangelical Christianity and the thieves' code of honor that have divided his family. His older brother, just out of jail, wants to live by his wits and resume a life outside the law, and they drive around the desolate countryside looking for a quick score. The tension between the men's Romany community and the larger French culture elevates this 2014 drama above the average crime-spree flick, but it's held back by sermonizing dialogue and a pat resolution. Jean-Charles Hue directed. In French with subtitles.
