For its great artistic quality and its humoristic, optimistic and humanist approach of the crisis faced by contemporary society. The film portrays values that are often under fire today such as friendship, solidarity, the importance of family and dialogue towards oneself and the other. Which the mythical Cantona summarizes in one sentence : "The best action I remember is not a goal but an assist".
