Bébé tigre by Cyprien Vial

2014, 1h27min, Drama, Fiction, English subtitles
This film takes place in Paris, now, and tells us the story of a seventeen year old boy from India who struggles daily in order to send money to his family. He doesn’t live totally illegally in France but works undercover, out of the law, being paid cash, hand to hand. And for a ruthless boss from India too. The tale of this young man who absolutely fights to survive. A tale of hope. This feature is not totally flawless, but we feel here the good will of the film maker to do his very best. He deserves to be rewarded for this realistic piece of work. The true face of life. This is his first movie. I hope he will continue in this way.
