Félicitations to Lincoln Hall, a student of Intermediate French who has been named winner of the second round of the 'Critiques de Film French Student Film Critic Prize'.
Lincoln won the second round with his review of Ladj Ly’s 2019 banlieue film, Les Misérables. Lincoln's review is now featured on the Embassy of France’s new website for French-Australian relations, sacreblue.org.
There is no doubt that this film is about the French people, and the values embedded in that flag of liberté, égalité, fraternité – liberty, equality, brotherhood. We see the crowds chanting together, celebrating as one. But what does it mean to be part of a team? What does it mean to belong to a group? What does it mean to be French?
