The story of Cuties

This film portrays the story of an 11-year-old Muslim girl named Amy who uses dancing to get through her family’s sorrows and upsets. Fathia Youssouf stars alongside Medina El Aidi and Esther Gohourou in the lead role. Fathia Youssouf lives in one of the poorest neighborhoods in an apartment with her two brothers.

Amy is attracted to the twerking clique of disobedient neighbor Angelica, a dance troupe, unlike Mariam’s traditional and religious beliefs and practices. Netflix sold the streaming rights to this film in July while the movie was released in the theaters on August 19, 2020. There was huge controversy across the country regarding the thumbnail for this film which exposed young girls dancing in mini-shorts.

This further led to a public debate about whether the pose constituted child pornography. Despite the controversies, Mignonnes played by Fathia Yousouf, managed to be nominated for Best Female Promising Actor in recognition of her performance. A Special Mention was given by the International Jury for Cuties at the Berlin Film Festival, as well as Best Director at Sundance. In France, it has been nominated in every category at the 2021 Césars.
