Va, vis et deviens

Live& become (English title)

Is a beautiful film of Radu Mihaileanu (2005).

Theme is a theme of all ages: refugees.
In one Sudanese camp a Jewish black mother ( a fallasha) buries her 9 year old son, after she lost her husband and other children.
Together with USA Israel organised an airlift with codename "Operation Moses" to get the black Jews to the Promised Land. The mother will be rescued this way too.
A Christian mother, who lost her full family except her young son, urges her son to go with the Jewish mother and pretend to be her son.
" Go, live and become" she says.
The boy leaves his mother, heartbroken and start his journey. Living in a life, based on a lie. He survives but never forget his mother in the camp.
So he discovers love, western culture, Judaism, but also rascism, war.
And he lives and becomes...

I will not tell the full story, please try to see this film.
The film seems to have a happy ending, but is actually the start of a new cluster of problems.
This movie got the public award of the filmfestival in Berlin.

Really beautiful!
Good story, perfect music, well filmed and darn good actors!!!

But it does not leave you untouched... it cuts right through your heart.
