This month's screening is a comedy, telling the story of a Catholic French couple whose daughters marry men from different ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds, against the parents' wishes. The film has a satirical approach to the cultural stereotypes in the society.
Here are a few comments/reviews on this film:
“Proves that the French can be offensive completely without meaning to” Chris Knight - National Post
"No doubt that this story reflects a changing French reality", "a prosaic lesson done up in pretty clothes." Hannah Brown - Jerusalem Post
After the film screening, we will also give information updates on two forthcoming important events:
- The International Women's Day (08 March) and the European Week against Racism (17-25 March). We will also distribute free publications about these events.
