Some has tagged this with the "feel good" gene. I don't know how anyone who has actually seen the end of this film can possibly call it feel good.

Just when you thought it had all gone wrong...
Very intense, sad movie with banality bringing the hero down. This script would have been impossible to film in the Anglo-Saxon world. It either must have a deeper cynicism, or a happy ending. But this French-Tunisian film has a load of sweetness...
