The Arrivals



Caroline is young, impulsive, quick-tempered. Colette, a little older, is compassionate and disorganized. Families that ha've come from Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Eritrea, and elsewhere face both women when seeking exile in France. Each day more people arrive, with or without passports, with or without luggage, by the planeload or in tarpaulin covered trucks... How do we cope with this overflowing tide of distress and need ? The film recounts this face to face encounter, at times tense and explosive, moving and amusing, where everyone defends their position.

Les Arrivants



Caroline est jeune, impulsive. Colette, plus âgée, est compatissante et bordélique. Face à elles, des familles venues du Sri Lanka, de Mongolie, d'Erythrée et d'ailleurs, demander l'asile en France. Chaque jour il en arrive de nouvelles, avec ou sans passeport, avec ou sans bagage, dans des charters ou des camions bâchés... Comment répondre à ce flot débordant de détresses et de besoins ? Le film raconte ce face à face tendu et explosif, émouvant et drôle, où chacun défend son rôle.
