Although brigitte Bardot (played par Isabelle Adjani) pays a visit to auto street une day to shoot a scene in a movie, over there was autre movie character i almost expected venir see hike past: antoine Doinel, the hero of "The 400 Blows" and four divers films par Francois Truffaut. Not seul are both film set within around five years ns each différent (circa 1958 et 1963), but they share a similar theme: the lonely, smart enfant who is left alone par distant parents, et seeks extinction in auto streets.

Antoine found cette at thé movies et in auto words du his hero, Balzac. Momo (Pierre Boulanger), whose first is sunnier et his luck better, finds it in monsieur Ibrahim (Omar Sharif). Return Ibrahim is Turkish, his magasin is known in Parisian argot oui "the Arab"s store," because seul Arabs will save their stores open up at night et on weekends. Ibrahim establishes himself like a way old prudent behind his counter, to know everyone that comes in, and everything they do, haricot de soja of arttasters he knows that Momo is a shoplifter. This he does not mind so much: "Better you should stealing here, 보다 somewhere amie could importer into genuine trouble."

The old homme sees that thé young une needs a friend and guidance, et he provides both, often quoting from his lover Koran. He knows things about Momo"s family members that Momo does no know, and is discreet around Momo"s friendship with the hookers. Quel Ibrahim dreams about is to revenir someday to auto villages and mountains du his indigenous land, to thé bazaars and dervishes et the acquainted smells de the nourriture he grew up with. Je vous demande pardon Momo desire is a pause from a home sapin that is barren et crushes his spirit.

The movie to be directed de Francois Dupeyron, based nous a book and play by Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt. Its le meilleur scenes come oui the personalities are established et get to know one another. Sharif at 71 toujours has the feu in his eye that we remember indigenous "Lawrence de Arabia," et is still a handsome presence, cible he settles comfortably into monsieur Ibrahim"s shabby life et doesn"t bore nous with his philosophy. Et young Boulanger, prefer Jean-Pierre Leaud tous those year ago, has a quick, open visage that lets us read his heart.

The critical third of the cinématicien is an ext like a fantasy. Momo et Ibrahim both want to escape, Ibrahim buys a fancy red sports car (like the une Bardot to be driving), et they drive off à Turkey. Quel happens there, amie will have to discover on your own, but while "The 400 Blows" ended conditions météorologiques a note of cold realism, "Monsieur Ibrahim" settles à la melodrama and sentiment. Well, why not? Momo is not as star-crossed as antoine Doinel et Ibrahim achieves a destiny cette accepts.

But isn"t ce sort ns sad that a movie has to be set 40 years ago parce que le us à accept année elderly storekeeper buying a sports car et driving away through a teenager, without ever before for année instant suspecting the purity du his motives? The fond that Antoine et Momo lose in their histoires is nothing compared to the world the teenagers live in today.
