Raw energy and hyper-realistic dialogue distinguish this cliché-free teenage romance, set in the Paris projects. 15-year-old Abdelkrim has his eyes opened to new interests but risks the ridicule of his friends when, in a bid to win the stunning Lydia, he manages to get himself cast opposite her in the school play.
