Synopsis 1960 and France is fighting Algeria to try and stop it from becoming independent. Racist feelings are blooming among the French people. It is in this setting that Georges and Gisèle Duvailly, a couple living in a small village, are expecting the arrival of their foster son. And he turns out to be called Messaoud, 9 years old, born in Algeria, very dark-skinned and a Muslim. Gisèle will do anything to protect the boy, even turning Messaoud into Michel, dyeing his hair blonde and changing his religion, even his country of origin.
Director bio Born in 1955 Thomas Gilou is currently one of France's best known film directors. After directing numerous short films, including La combine de la giraffe (a Cesar award nominee in 1983), he took up feature filmmaking in 1986. His first features, Black Mic Mac (1986) and Rai (1995), deliberately rooted in social reality, attracted considerable attention, but it was above all with the highly successful Would I Lie to You? (1997) and Would I Lie to You?2 (2001) that Gilou made a name for himself.
