I watched this film a while ago and have been profoundly moved by its thought provoking themes. It is a French film nicely presented with a good sense of French humour (that I love!).
This film has re-inforced what I have always felt within me. I've always wondered why we live in high cages surrounded by concrete and metal. Why we are forced to breath polluted air emitted by strange metal boxes going up and down black alleys (cars!). We created a quite hostile environment for ourselves that does not benefit neither our purpose, survival and most important happiness.
This film has been poorly rated by some. But for me it is the best film I've watched so far!
Our world is ruled by this rectangular piece of paper we call money. So much that nowadays it does contribute to 'happiness'. Or happiness as we of it! We allow ourselves to be led by fat selfish people caring only about themselves, their money & power. We don't really listen to each other, talk to each other. In our world, the less capable ones rule because they have the power to do so and exploit the goodness of the capable weaker ones.
We are constantly worried about trivial things like being late to work, meeting the deadline, and never take the time to see, appreciate and be grateful for the beautiful life and nature that surround and support us.
We pay taxes to support the people who are exploiting us, to support tobbaco, weapons, mass killing.
We need to be disconnected and shaken by fabulous artists like Coline Serreau. We need to be shocked to be able to evolve into something more intelligent.
I would recommend this movie to anyone who in search of an answer about this what life is really about, but also to just anyone. It's worth watching!
By the way, if you speak French, it's better to watch the original French version.
