Storyline

At 17, Sonia almost left her family to go jihad. She was convinced that this was the only way for her and her family to go to heaven. She finally came back to reason. Unlike Mélanie, 16 years old, raised by her mother, she was a teenager with no history, who shared her life between school, her friends and her cello lessons. But on the Internet, she began to argue with a "prince" who managed to wash her brain. Filled with guilt for not having seen anything, the parents watch helplessly with the metamorphosis of their child. Written by lament

Great subject, mediocre movie - any slower and the reel would've gone backwards
3 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Living in Paris and having lived through the recent terror events, either because of people I knew were there or I was there myself, I was really interested in seeing this movie.

We saw it at a preview in La Defense last night and whilst the subject is indeed great the movie in itself is super slow. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't expecting an action movie of sorts but this is just too slow. The movie won't catch the attention of young people and that's kinda what it should do as well, simply so that it can prevent harm in addition to being entertainment.

The director answered some questions before the movie started and she said that her original cut was another hour longer than the one that made it to the movies. I'm sorry but that's simply insane, even the ~2 hour cut we saw is super long and any longer would've caused the audience to fall asleep.

It's a little confusing right around the start since both girls live around the same place but have no obvious connection to each other, yet that's not entirely clear. It's great to see how one goes in and the other one comes out, so to speak.
