Occupied Paris, 1942. Unemployed Algerian immigrant and low-level black marketeer Younes just wants to keep his nose clean and avoid attracting the attention of the occupying Nazis. Gradually, though, encounters with an Arab resistance member and an Algerian Jew brings out a new side to him. Before long he's joining the struggle. Starring Tahar Ramih (Un Prophet).

An eloquent and affecting portrait of an incarcerated teenager attempting to win parole by working at a local morgue. Raised from birth in institutions, 19 year-old Roman is initially impassive and self-sabotaging in his behavior; soon, though, he begins to respect the solemn work of handling the dead, and starts to come to terms with his own youthful crime.
