A poignant and tender story of family relationships, the effects of divorce and differences among men and women. This is the heartwarming story of a boy who's left in the care of his grandparents when his parents split up. Adel may not overly show it but the feelings of anxiety and loneliness manifests itself in his demeanor. The company of his grandmother is a gentle reassurance that he will be alright and their great chemistry is at once evident. Multi-awarded director Fatima Zamoum should be commended for this tender and very affecting film, she gives utmost attention to details and the painter in her can be seen by the way the shots are well-framed. Impressive performances by Racim Zennadi as Adel who's so inquisitive and  smart and equally great portrayals by the actors who portrayed as his grannys as well as the uncle. One thing I particularlly noticed in this film is that, whenever the grandmother prepares their meals there is music or singing in the background, which I find unique.  Do check out this film!

Viewers can't help but fall for this little boy, he has the most innocent and beguiling eyes. Adel, portrayed by Racim Zemnadi stays at his grandparents' home for a few days which ultimately extended to a few weeks. This is due to marital problems between his parents ultimately leading to divorce. This heartwarming and tender drama will move you with empathy for the child, who's always the one caught between the conflicts of a husband and wife.  Luckily for Adel he has caring grandparents to watch over him and see to it that he gets by. The grandma-grandson bond is so moving and inspiring and for Adel she becomes a pillar of support. Worth checking out!
