France, Canada, 2015
Drama
      French

Synopsis

After she is injured in a fall, Fatima writes her two daughters letters in Arabic to express things she has never been able to express in French.

Our take

The lives of 2 generations of Moroccan immigrants and their complicated transitions into French culture are sensitively expressed in this drama. The timeless struggle between cultural tradition and change is at its center, right alongside a truly inspiring depiction of mother-daughter relationships.
