Eiffel Tower is nowhere to be seen. For the two African brothers fleeing their war-torn country to seek asylum, Paris is no more than a stone-cold city in a season of hell. Agonized by the change in identity and traumatized by the loss of his wife, the grieving father struggles to have normal love while wrestling to make do with cashin- hand jobs. A moving vision of life for those stuck in legal and emotional limbo, Chadian director Haroun (A Screaming Man, 35th) feels deeper with the refugees for their bitter humiliation in the face of diminished dignity.
