"Games of Love and Chance"
Directed by Abdel Kechichie
Abdel Kechiche's robust, Cesar-winning drama is set
in a Parisian housing project, where street-wise teenagers balance their
hopes and dreams against the sometimes grim realities of day-to-day life.
Osman Elkharraz stars as an outwardly tough teen who nurtures a secret
creative side. When he falls for a young actress (Sara Forestier) who's
starring in a production of Marivaux's 18th century drama, Games of
Love and Chance, Krimo risks ostracism by signing on with the cast.
"Beautifully observed [...] Plays like a Cassavetes project in a fresh,
young mode" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). In French with English
