Sebastien Lifshitz directed this French drama, winner of the 1998 Prix Jean Vigo. Born to a North African father and a French mother, 18-year-old Parisian high school senior Remi (Yasmine Belmadi) works part-time in an Arab grocery store while studying management and commerce. He responds to a school ad seeking subjects for a film, and Marc (Pierre-Loup Rajot), who placed the ad, auditions Remi by filming an interview with him. Remi and Marc wind up in bed, and Remi soon has other sexual experiences -- with a guy (Lifshitz) in a men's room and with a young woman (Margot Abascal) who grabs him while she's dancing in the street. The soundtrack features North African music.
