Madame Courage

A Feature film by Merzak Allouache

Produced by Neon Productions

Production year : 2015


    Omar, an unstable and lonely teenager, lives in a slum in the suburbs of Mostaganem.

    He is addicted to a famous psychotropic, nicknamed « Madame Courage » : Artane tablets, very popular among young Algerians, for their euphoric effect of invincibility.

    Omar is a specialist in snatching. This morning, he goes downtown to commit his usual crimes. His first prey is a young girl called Selma, walking with her friends, prominently wearing a gold necklace.

    As he commits his larceny, their eyes meet.
