The film

Synopsis

From writer-director Abdellatif Kechiche comes an expansive, energetic, good-humoured social tableau set in a north-African dockside community and centred around the opening of a floating restaurant. Weary 60-year-old Monsieur Beiji wants to realise his long-cherished dream of opening a boat restaurant specialising in fish-and-couscous dishes. But the ship is still to be renovated, and local dignitaries to be persuaded that the venture has a future. And then there are Beiji's friends and family - including the new woman in his life, his ex-wife and a host of neighbours - who have their own parts to play in the success or failure of his dream. This affectionate and intimate portrait of the cultural landscape of modern France features some of the most mouthwatering scenes of food and feasting ever committed to celluloid.
