Jacques Arnault, the head of an NGO, is planning a high impact operation: he and his team are going to exfiltrate 300 orphans victims of Chadian civil war and bring them to France. Immersed in the brutality of war, the NGO members are faced with the limits of humanitarian intervention.

Our take

Inspired by real-life controversies, Joachim Lafosse’s ironically titled drama astutely dissects the complex geopolitical dynamic that surrounds the presence of French NGO workers in former colonies. Vincent Lindon’s layered performance echoes the film’s resistance to making facile moral judgement.
