Dir Kamir Aïnouz

The 17-year-old protagonist played by Zoé Adjani (niece of Isabelle Adjani) lives between countries and cultures as well as adolescence and adulthood in Franco-Algerian director Kamir Aïnouz’s debut feature. Set mainly in 1993 Paris and the affluent suburb of Neuilly sur Seine where the girl grows up amid the strictures of her parents who insist she speaks French at home. She struggles to define herself and her relationship with various males in a narrative that moves from the personal to the generational.
