critical: Olivier Afonso is inspired by his father’s life and draws from it a vivid, sensitive and colorful story, always on a human level, vibrant, but never falling into pity. One of his great qualities is drawing pictures full of nuances, each hero has his share of strengths and weaknesses, including minor characters. This makes it possible to shed more light on slum life, construction site work and Portuguese society in France in the 1970s. The subtlety and subtlety of both subject matter and narration evoke certain works by the great Barrow, and it’s not nothing!
