Set over the course of two decades, this gorgeous film from French director and screenwriter Serraille follows young mother Rose and her two sons who move from the Ivory Coast to Paris in the late 1980s.
Living in the cramped flat of a relative, Rose (brilliantly played by Annabelle Lengronne) struggles to mould her boys into young men as the world keeps shifting beneath her feet.
An enthralling, unsentimental portrait of single motherhood and the migrant experience.
