Une saison en France
Une saison en France (☞imdb)
An asylum seeker and his two children start to make a new life in Paris while awaiting the outcome of his asylum application. For a short while we see the warmth of a budding new family before the system delivers its verdict. Warmth turns into despair with one particularly shocking episode that jerks one back into the reality of the situation. This should be compulsory viewing in these intolerant times.
