Visiting Ours

De sas en sas

82 mins


Every month, women go to a prison on the outskirts of Paris to visit their loved ones: sons, fathers, brothers, partners. They wait in the summer heat. As they move through security checks, relationships are made and broken, tongues loosen, tension mounts… until finally a riot erupts behind bars.

MUBI's take

In a welcome subversion of prison movie tropes, this debut feature from French actor-director Rachida Brakni shifts its focus from the inmates to the women visiting their loved ones. Under an oppressive heatwave, Visiting Ours examines the boiling tensions as bonds are forged and quickly undone.
