Magic realism and the energy from a real and live neighborhood in France are the keys for Clément Cogitore’s film in the Semaine de la Critique at the Festival de Cannes 2022. The director explains how he built his protagonist and managed to never judge him despite his behaviour, his scamming people. The film’s original title comes from a neighborhood, La Goutte d’Or, Cogitore once lived in and knows very well.

Sons of Ramses: Ramses is a skillful clairvoyant in the multicultural Parisian district of La Goutte d’Or. When a gang of fearless kids start terrorizing the locals, the balance of his thriving business and of the whole neighborhood is disturbed. Until one day, when Ramses has a real vision.
