| Quality filmmaking and accurate depiction
This short film hits all the right notes. The direction and cinematography are solid, and the story provides a masterful glimpse into the plight of the Roma community in France. It leaves the audience wanting to fight for them. Actors are rightfully spot-on, since many of them are from the Roma community in the outskirts of Paris, according to the director:

"Merlant says she involved her friends from the gypsy community as much as possible in both the acting roles and also production roles, such as catering, and set design."
