Sadly, instead of raising a big red flag and delivering an urgent warning that France has entered a self-destruction mode, Audiard ends the film with an utterly disappointing feel-good segment that almost completely destroys its credibility. It literally attempts to defend the hypocrisy of the elite European politicians who have been trying hard to sell the idea that by uprooting people and permanently relocating them to a different part of the world they are solving their problems, while quietly and diligently serving the interests of powerful business and political players with dangerous global agendas.
Svet didn't get it.
