With this film, Danielle Arbid sketches a very accurate portrait of France in the1990s.
All the charm of Parisienne, Danielle Arbid's finest film to date, lies in the politically basic but reassuring message defending integration that underlies its simplicity and broad appeal.
STUDIO CINE LIVE
Love and politics combine in this film as spirited as it is moving.
Parisienne (...) has joy in its heart like its heroine.
Utterly bittersweet, sexy in places and brutal in others, Danielle Arbid’s Parisienne (Peur de rien) is both educational and entertaining
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
Director Danielle Arbid's semi-autobiographical film stars impressive newcomer Manal Issa as a young Lebanese woman who struggles to survive in Paris by herself.
