Bonjour Monsieur Shlomi (Hebrew title: Ha-Kochavim Shel Shlomi הכוכבים של שלומי - Shlomi's Stars) is a 2003 film written and directed by Shemi Zarhin.[1]

The story is about a 16-year-old Moroccan-Israeli boy by the name of Shlomi, who cares for everyone in his life but himself.

Shlomi lives with his jealous and pretentious mother, his soldier brother, and their elderly grandfather. Although not doing well in school, Shlomi is a gifted cook and takes care of most household chores, [2] while all the grownups around him are busy with their childish affairs, neglect him, and ignore his dyslexia.

Shlomi tries to be invisible, especially at school, until a routine math test catches the attention of Shlomi's teacher, who suspects that a unique gift lies behind that dormant facade. The school's headmaster takes Shlomi under his wing, and Shlomi blossoms.[3]
