"In an ar rest ing per formance, the nonprofessional actor ANTONYTHASAN JESUTHASAN (himself a former child soldier) stars as a Tamil fighter who, along with a woman and child posing as his wifeand daughter, flees war-torn Sri Lanka only to land in a Paris suburb riddled with drugs. As th e makeshift family embarks on a new life, Dheepan settles into an intimate social-realist mode, before tightening, gradually and organically, into a dynamic turf-war thriller, as well as an unsettling study of the psychological aftereffects of combat. Searing and sensitive, Audiardâs film is a unique depiction of the refugee experience as a continuous crisis of identity."
