Bloody Oranges. The second feature from French director Jean-Christophe Meurisse is a vicious satire on contemporary life. At times hilarious, at others shocking – always provocative – the film pushes and pulls the viewer in every direction as it follows four moments in the lives of people in modern-day France. Blended together, they provide a deceptive look at three generations and a mix of social classes, allowing the director to highlight how the structural systems in France, and indeed much of Europe, protect the elite. In such a system, for the rest, winning means survival, not justice.
