The 2 main characters are women. There is a gang leader who is also a woman. The whole film is about their struggle to get out of poverty, and the roles that have already been carved out for them, as refugees in France.

I think this rating is wrong: there's a moment where the two main characters (females) speak between them about God and the djinns. Unless God count like a man, this rating is invalid (and anyway, the movie pass 2 of 3 tests in this situation, and not 1).

Despite the IMDB's synopsis ("A street teenager from a dysfunctional family from a banlieue (HLMs) in Paris comes across a young dancer who turns her life upside down."), the movies is full of women who talk to each other about their future, about dance, about money, about business, about family...
