Des milliers de taxi-cyclomoteurs à trois roues – appelés tuk-tuks – serpentent à travers les rues frénétique du Caire chaque jour, conduits par des jeunes hommes besogneux, beaucoup d’entre eux ne sont même pas encore adolescents. Magnifiquement filmé dans les rues ensoleillées, Tuk-tuk suit Abdallah, Sharon et Bika, qui, alors même qu’ils sont trop jeunes pour se raser ou même obtenir un permis légal, sont forcé de conduire afin de nourrir leus familles. Cernés de tous cotés par la police, les voleurs et les autres taxis, les garçons prennent chaque chance pour prennent du plaisir et s’échapper de la prison de la pauvreté.

English

Thousands of three-wheeled motorized rickshaws – called tuk-tuks – zip through the frenetic streets of Cairo every day, driven by industrious young men, many of them not even teenagers. Across gorgeously photographed sun-drenched streets, Tuk-tuk follows Abdallah, Sharon and Bika, who, while too young to shave or even obtain a legal license, are forced to drive to feed their families. Besieged on all sides by police, thieves and other taxis, the boys take every chance to find a happy diversion or fleeting escape from the prison of poverty. Pulsating with comedy and danger, the film illustrates the resilient outlook of three children who have to become adults before their time, and their struggle to hold on to some semblance of childhood.
