A great film! I discovered it in B&T's Alert, I think. Several of my
colleagues have watched and been impressed, too.

Dear collective mind,


I'm looking for movies (feature films not documentaries) that shows the
treatment of immigrants or refugees in the European Union. I know a
couple like: "In this world" and "La Haine" (The Hate). Do you have any
suggestions for similar movies? Thanks.
