Storyline

Paco and Nora once were an ideally matched couple. Both loved nature, nomadic or semi-nomadic life and agreed to raise their children far from the corruption of the consumer society. But Nora, unlike Paco, grew tired of such a lifestyle and left Paco taking their children with her. Paco would not accept what he considered a betrayal, all the more since Nora had obtained custody of the children. Taking advantage of his access to his children, Paco took flight with his two sons, Tsali and Okyesa. Their escape was to last an amazing eleven years... Written by Guy Bellinger

The true life
21 September 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

It could have been a Tony Gatlif film, although it is not a movie about gypsies. But it's a true, genuine story about freedom and an offbeat way of living. The storyline has already told it so I won't repeat it, but believe me this feature grabs you from the beginning to the end. Actors play here tremendously, as they would in actual life, as any real person would behave. It's also a story about love and impossible dreams, impossible achievements for a better life. Celine Salette is better than ever and so is Mathieu Kassovitz as the runaway father and his wayward kids. Such outcasts communities exist in the deep french countryside. I guess it was not released widely enough to have to be watched by large audiences. So shame.
