Lars Von Trier hypnotized the viewer upon entering Europa, Max Von Sydow counted to 10 and left everyone relaxed. Now Guido Hendrikx snaps his fingers so noisily that it leaves the world unwell. 1.5 million refugees/year are coming to the Old Continent and each of them costs 26 thousand euros/year. But Europe is the heaven for those fleeing wars and seeking employment. The Dutch director uses irony while blending fiction and reality, to explain the refugee crisis in Europe in three acts: first, a conservative right-wing view; second, a human and liberal look; and, finally, a group of refugees is instructed to resolve their stay on European soil. Above all, the first part leaves many people indignant. What Hendrikx suggests is that the important thing is to debate. (César Nóbrega)
