Welcome (2009)

Philippe Lioret makes a film about immigration, humanity, friendship, love, life it self. There are no beatifications, no good and bad people. Just people in need and people settled. People who, when in need, will steal to make their lives a bit easier and those who will not…There are also people who keep their humanity and those who cannot.

It takes a lot of courage to make such a film: being honest about oneself, about the society one lives in, the friends you’ll have to face once such a film is released. A must see! Do not miss it…

My rating: 10/10


  1. Although it will sound contradictory to anyone who has seen this film, what I loved most about it, was its ending. It epitomizes the difference between Hollywood and European films (I’m trying not to give away too much). I definitely recommend it for its humane point of view, its acting, its messages. If it helps some of us become better people, it will have achieved more than most films do.
