Unfortunately inspired by true stories ...
8 March 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

The trio Swann Arlaud + Finnegan Oldfield + Charles Berling is excellent and reinforces a literally incredible but sad story: indeed, in this film, the character of Faustine is barely credible: she is certainly converted to the Muslim religion but without being radicalized, then the suite is somewhat far-fetched: why this mother leaves France WITH HER SON to join an evil and terrorizing country ?
