About the film
Dheepan is a 2015 French crime drama film directed by Jacques Audiard and partly inspired by Montesquieu’s Persian Letters, as well as the 1971 film Straw Dogs.
The film tells the story of three Tamil refugees who flee the civil war-ravaged Sri Lanka and come to France, in the hope of reconstructing their lives. The film won the Palme d’Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
