DrFirestone's rating of the film Atlantiques

I appreciate handling the difficult topic, which might serve as an eye opener for those looking down on immigrants or opposing illegal (or legal) immigration. There are some truly poetic moments, filled with nostalgia, hope and despair - mainly the discussion by the campfire. It doesn't seem to work well as a whole though - the different parts feel fragmented, awkwardly put together.
