Messaoud, a young Arab boy, is placed in a foster family in rural France at the age of nine . The year is 1961 and Algeria is in the midst of revolution. Gisèle, his adoptive mother, by fear of the anti-Arab sentiment that has broken out in the region, decides to change the child’s identity. Messaoud is renamed Michel, "Michou". Gisèle also hides the truth from her own husband, Georges, a retired soldier. Little by little, things get complicated between Georges, Gisèle and Michou.

A decent effort at portraying the Algerian war of independence through young eyes.

I watched this in French (with some help from the guy sitting next to me) so I didn't understand everything, but it was very good nonetheless, and I will watch it again when I get subtitles!

Not an outstanding film, but definitely worth seeing at least once... and a good one in the future for the dvd collection.
