Summary
  • Bebe and Clim have known each other since they were children. Bebe is an eighteen year old black man, who along with his sister, was adopted by a childless white French couple. Clim is white, the daughter of factory worker and bricklayer. Framed by a racist cop, the film begins with Bebe in jail for rape and Clim pregnant with his child. The attempts to have the rape charges set aside lead Clim's mother to undertake a journey to Sarajevo where she confronts the woman who has laid charges against Bebe. Robert Guediguian's humanist story of love, struggle and family is part of a continuing oeuvre which is both a celebration of working-class Marseilles and a critical examination of the tensions and social conditions created by late-twentieth century economic rationalism. What informs Guediguian, however, is a deep commitment to the familial and communal bonds which tie people together. There is no cynicism or nihilism in his films, even if the subject matter being dealt with - racism, war, unemployment and disenfranchment - may appear initially overwhelming, his realist cinema is attuned to the richness and transcendence of everyday human life.
