I had the privilege to see this film at a French preview on June 25, during the inaugural evening of the brand new "UGC Ciné cité Parly", right next to Versailles, in the suburbs of Paris. Many official speeches (CEO of UGC, local mayor, ...) with that of Éric Toledano at the end.
The film is tip top with two main qualities: 1) the actors play excellently, in particular Reda Kateb and Vincent Cassel, but not only, the whole cast being awesome. 2) The film deals with beneficence and philanthropy. This is clearly out of the ordinary, people being traditionally turned to themselves, as for example the "gilets jaunes" endured by the whole French population for a semester, with claims as egoistic as destructive.
So, you may approach this cinematographic UFO as a feel good movie (thanks to the generosity of the characters) in a sad context (autism). As a synthesis: 7/8 of 10.
