Movie synopsis: In the streets of Algiers, ‘Madame Courage’ is a name for a popular psychotropic drug which evokes feelings of euphoria and invincibility. Omar, a young petty thief, is addicted, and Madame determines the feverish rhythm of his days and nights. That is disrupted by Selma, whose golden necklace he's stolen. The fictional Omar represents thousands of real-world lost young people in today's Algerian slums. Director Merzak Allouache offers an authentically rough picture of his home country through a segment of Omar's life, constantly and closely observing him with almost a painful intensity of the dynamic camera and animalistic acting performance in the leading role.
