The authors of the film violated the boundaries of what was permitted by choosing a deliberately provocative topic for their work: tense interethnic relations within the framework of one single family, where a native of the former Soviet Union and an Ethiopian girl were preparing for the wedding. The question is legitimate whether the son-director had the right to bring rubbish from the hut to a wide public court. These are the most intimate details of the relationship with your own mother, is one of our fundamental commandments about respect for parents violated here?
