56 - LOLA PATER
What a story, and what an extraordinary actress to have been cast by director Nadir Mokneche to play the hero/heroine! Fanny Ardant as Lola, is simply brilliant, in this beautiful and touching dramatic comedy!Soon after the burial of his immigrant Algerian mother in Paris, Zino (Tewfick Jallab) goes on a search for his father Farid. He discovers that his father never really returned to Algeria as he had always been told. Zino is appalled to uncover that Farid (Fanny Ardant), had actually undergone a sex-change 25 years before and had become “Lola”.
