Although the film is set in Venice, don't expect beauty. It's all rather grim, unrealistically so. But ugly is the modus operandi for any director that wants to be taken "seriously," so there you go. This is the typical rubbish being made to affirm the sacred beliefs of a particular bleeding heart audience, who need to be convinced over and over again, that immigration (from 3rd world countries into Europe) is something that must simply be accepted, and that nationalism is bad. Most immigrants here are shown as saintly sensitive innocents, whilst the local working class population are portrayed as a nasty racist violent bunch of peasants.
This is pantomime of the most basic kind, presented as profound drama.
