Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this crime comedy set in the interracial slums of Marseilles, the children are pressed into service to run small-time theft rings to pay for their father's drug or booze habits. However, when the whole city is divided up into two rival gangs, the mothers decide they have had enough of this abusive foolishness. They take over the entire criminal business of the city, and ensure that their darlings steal from the rich instead of from other poor people. The story of this revolution is narrated by a sympathetic parish priest (Jean-Pierre Darroussin).
