Our take

Named for the high-rise apartment building at the film’s centre, The Republic of Enchanters continues co-directors Fanny Liatard and Jérémy Trouilh’s examination of social housing in the French suburbs, telling three stories that challenge the national motto “liberty, equality, fraternity.”
