Something must be done in order to do away with the eurocentrism.
"Bienvenue en Suisse" by Lea Fazer is a very eurocentric film. This is because it talks of countries like France, Belgium and Switzerland. This is not the only reason for appreciating this film. It can also be shown as part of your French class. Lea Fazer has made an honest attempt to do away with all the clichés that surround Switzerland. According to her even in a country like Switzerland there are people for whom their own interest are more important than anything. It must also be noted that this film is not a travel brochure for Swiss government. If someone wants to learn how a frenchman speak swiss french, watch out for Vincent Perez. There are good performances by Emmanuelle Devos and Podalydes too.
