FEET IN the SUBURBS, EYES TO THE SKY : “Swagger “
This documentary, shot in Aulnay-sous-Bois, with students of the college Claude Debussy form a fabulous portrait of the group that eyeing on the side of the fantastic cinema, the thriller, the musical, science-fiction, propelling us, as it thwarts all the clichés attached to the suburb, light years ahead of everything that we have been able to see so far over the Seine-Saint-Denis. the Swagger condenses at a discharge electro-pop the ardour of a youth all-conquering, swells with hope, and the blues in the ghetto.
If this movie moves as if it has aroused, already, such enthusiasm, it is because its object is not so much the suburbs as the subjectivity of its characters, great personalities in which he exalts the feelings, the desire, the imagination. Stories of being uprooted, children are propelled too early into adulthood, revolve in it with an unconditional love of the rock, the other with a burning desire to become an architect. From these singular experiences, none of which overlap, Swagger invites us to reconfigure everything we thought to know about the suburbs. the Isabelle Regnier
