All right! Coming!


Ok, Ok...

Where's our red wedding blanket?

The red one?

I can't find it.

I don't know.

Then who does?

Naima, it's not my problem!

You're with the FBI?

Ignore her, Jacqueline.

She's jealous.

How are you today?

Did you sleep well?

Hot today, isn't it?

Let me turn the air-con on.

Let's get this off you

before Naima kicks up a fuss.

Seen this, Jacqueline?

The champion.

What a beauty.

Inch'Allah, we'll go

to the Agricultural Show like her.

You're beautiful today.

If we go one day, you'll see...

The man will say,

"Ladies and gentlemen,

let's give a warm welcome

to the beautiful, the lovely,

the sweet Jacqueline from Boulayoune!"

They'll all cheer and celebrate!

They'll give you kisses, flowers,


But today we have to go to the market.

I know...

You don't want to,

but what can I do?

Got to make a living.


If you arrive late,

you'll get the worst spot again.

Hurry or not,

I always get the worst spot.



Let's go, Jacqueline.

Khadija, my daughter...

How are you today?

Go on, talk to her in French

like I taught you.

Hello, Jacqueline,

I'm pleased to meet you.

My name's Khadija.

What's your name?

That's good, Khadija, my girl.

Learning French is important, ok?

"How do you do?"

"Enjoy your meal."

"Where's the bathroom?"

"The bathrooms engaged or vacant."


Will you sing us your French song?


You sing with me, all right?

Here we go.

My wife, I'll take you to the country

Where we'll sleep in a hut together

And ea! apples and bananas

Can I ride Jacqueline?

No, you rode her yesterday.

Go on, get to work.

Thank you.

Thanks for the milk.

- You're welcome.

- God protect you.


Hamed, it's your son-in-law

and his second wife.


When'll you marry Jacqueline?

Maybe she'll give you a son!

Shut up!

Look at you,

lazing around all day.

Shame on you, Mokhtar,

talking like that.

Just playing around.

The country's fine.

It's the people, they're mean.


- Has the postman been?

- Not yet.

I have that tape you wanted.


"Stars 80"! You found it!

Francois Feldman, Niagara,


All your Aznavour.

You're a real pro, Samir.

No problem, enjoy it.

Who's that?

My French girlfriend.

- Can she see you?

- At the bottom.

She saw me?

You leaned in.

Yes, she saw you.

Of course she did.

It's too late now. Talk to her.

Hello, ma'am.

How's things in France?

- I'm Charlie too!

- All of us!

Samir's the best!

He's a great guy.

You have to marry him.

He'll get papers

to bring all his cousins to France!

Don't say that!

She'll hang up!

- You want to marry her?

- Yes.

She's like your grandma,

with straight hair.

Get lost.

Take Jacqueline to the market!

That guy's crazy!

I love you too.

How's it going, Al Pacino?

Mail! Mail!

Get your mail!

- Messaoudi, Mohamed?

- That's me.





You're Mohamed?

Are you all called Mohamed here?

Bellabbes, Fatah?

He's my son-in-law.

I'll take it.

I can't give it to you.

But he's my son-in-law.

It's an official letter from France.

Personal delivery.

Get him.


Get Fatah from the market.

He can forget Jacqueline,

the postman wants him!

Who's Jacqueline?


Here he comes.

- Bellabbes, Fatah?

- Yes.

Sign here.

Go on, read it.

"Dear Mr Bellabbes,"

That's me.

"As every year,

you have asked to attend

the Agricultural Show."


"Due to your perseverance

and motivation,

the committee has decided to invite you

and your cow Jacqueline...

to the international
