Voisines, voisines

by Malik Chibane (2005) with Anémone, Jackie Berroyer, Frédéric Dieffenthal, Fellag (France, 86 mins.)

In the suburbs of Paris, the residents of the Mozart estate, a privatised former public housing estate, get a new caretaker, Paco, and a new neighbour, a rap musician. The rapper, lacking inspiration, only has three days to write his lyrics, otherwise he can say goodbye to the advance he received from the record company… Ideas? Lyrics? Music? But what if his inspiration were right there on the doorstep? The rap musician observes, composes, writes and sings. The Mozart estate becomes the stage for a hip hop fable as the rapper turns into the good genie of his neighbours’ destiny…
