Sabine is a charismatic, larger-than-life personality crammed into a tiny shop in the immigrant Brussels district of Matonge. Here, she and her employees style extensions and glue on lashes while sharing rumors about government programs to legalize migrants and talking about life back home in Cameroon.
Richard Brody, The New Yorker
An original filmmaker of exquisite sensibility; one of the foremost filmmakers of creative nonfiction working right now.
Lucy Shanker, Vox Magazine
Intense vulnerability makes the film emotionally gripping; the contrast between a public storefront and intimate confessions makes it engrossing... Chez Jolie Coiffure unequivocally extracts a powerful sense of empathy—and urgency.
