Cathy is a stubborn 40-year-old sous chef. She is finally about to fulfill her lifelong dream: Opening her own gastronomic restaurant. But nothing goes as planned. Facing serious financial difficulties, she reluctantly accepts a job in the cafeteria of a shelter for young migrants. While she hates her new position, Cathy’s skills and passion for cuisine start to change the kids’ lives. And they also have a lot to teach her… “La Brigade treats audiences to a memorable cast of characters: the celebrated but snobby Lyna Deletto; the outspoken and self-confident Fatou; the all-embracingly kind Sabine; the dedicated director; and the fantastic young men who play the roles of the migrants. La Brigade offers a thoughtful look at some of the difficulties migrants face in their quest to to make better lives for themselves and their families. The film makes no suggestion that there are easy answers. Rather, it takes us into the hearts and minds of a group of people just trying their best on both sides of the equation. A gentle testament to the best of the human spirit… La Brigade takes on a very real and all-too-common story with a light and engaging touch.” —BMA Magazine
