Giving cinematic praise where it's due. Raining down hellfire where it's not.

A French film about an immigrant boy from Iraq trying to reach his girlfriend in London. A lot of powerful messages amidst good performances. It’s a shame they chose to end it in such a depressing manner. Probably closer to reality, but not the way to end a film.
Spoiler alert. The boy drowns and his girlfriend gets forced into a marriage where she’ll be raped repeatedly by an old creep. Credits roll.
