    • Synopsis
    • Villejuif, Bobigny, Le Pré-Saint-Gervais, on the outskirts of Paris, are names that symbolize the unrest and rioting of recent years. Names that, in French, have come to represent the «banlieue» (suburbs) with all its negative connatationsand its negative connotations. Somewhere between documentary and fiction, La vie ailleurs charts the boyhood memories of a man, as he recalls his life spent in a tower block on a housing estate, his dreams of escape to the nearby city, and his father when he arrived from Algeria and had to overcome homesickness so he could start a new life. David Teboul takes his camera into the apartments in these areas and latches onto the dreams of those who live there, amid the floral wallpaper, the paintings of pink flamingos, the posters of endless forests.
