Cassavetes French-style, complete with hand-held camera and pitched at a human level. A film you see when you’re in the mood for roughing it, and that you emerge from feeling deeply moved.
LE NOUVEL OBSERVATEUR
There’s a biting poetry, a fierce energy, a charge of raw emotion in this film. Above all, it has a rare quality: it has soul.
For their first feature, Hamé and Ekoué, founders of the rap band La Rumeur, delve into the fast-paced underworld of Pigalle, with its bars, shady characters, and nightlife in constant flux.
A genuine close-up, this modern tragedy about brothers from the suburbs who want to turn their lives around attests to the talent of these two directors. Thanks to them, "Pigalle la Blanche" has never been portrayed in such vivid colors.
