Occupied Paris, 1942. Low-level black marketeer Younes (Rahim) just wants to keep his nose clean and avoid attracting the attention of the occupying Nazis. Gradually, though, encounters with an Arab resistance member and an Algerian Jew brings out a new side to him. Before long he's joining the struggle.
It may lack the punch of his turn in A Prophet, but Rahim again dominates the screen in an effective wartime thriller.
