Amin Reviews

June 30, 2019
The film's theme is obvious: migrant life is tough and unfair, and the French government isn't helping much either. What's more tragic however, is Amin's uninspiring narrative.

Filmmaker Philippe Faucon kind of skims the surface, watching rather than investing in the drama. But the stories he tells are important, and the filmmaking is engagingly thoughtful.

Amin is a quiet but inconclusive glimpse into a contemporary situation that increasingly defines the European/African experience.

What felt like a graceful simplicity in Fatima too often feels like oversimplification in Amin.

The film's main asset is Mbengue in the central role of Amin, an immigrant labourer in France with a wife and three children back home in Senegal.
