Made in France

A Feature film by Ahmed Bouchaala, Zakia Tahiri-Bouchaala

Produced by Île Productions

Release in France : 24/01/2001

    Synopsis

    Patrick Morel, wearing a woman’s dress leaves a costume party. He goes to the bathroom of a café to make a phone call. Zoubida, a transvestite, grabs the chance to swap purses and disappears. Despite all his protests, Patrick is hauled off by the police and is now recognised by all as Ali Berrada, an Algerian transvestite and illegal immigrant. He shares a cell with Sonia, a beautiful Algerian, and Youssef, a nasty little show-off. All three are given expulsion orders. As they are being transferred to the airport, they manage to escape. It’s during their crazy escapade, in blend of comedy and emotion, that these three oddballs get to know, and then to love, each other.
