Welcome (2009)

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.

Rating: C
