Bangladeshi chess prodigy throws’refugee problem’

This is a touching true story about the story of a Bangladeshi genius boy Pahim Mohammad who must become a chess champion in order to live with his beloved family again. Dramatically tells the story of the protagonist exiled to France and became a world chess champion.

The country-wide violence continues in Bangladesh, which has caused extreme confrontation between the ruling and opposition parties ahead of the general election. When the transitional government with the support of the military declared a state of emergency for two years from 2006 and conducted military administration, numerous refugees And scattered across India, Asia, and Europe. Fahim’s father, who stood on the other side, also chose asylum without enduring political threats. Leaving behind her mother and younger sister, only Fahim and her father leave first.

The fact that the scene of the demonstration was put in the introduction is the consideration of the director who helped understand why the rich Pahim had to leave Dhaka. When Pahim handed me a picture of her mother, which was cherished, an immigration officer cut off only the face part with scissors without appreciation. This is a scene that tells us that permission to stay is not easy.

Fahim meets Sylvain (Gerard Departieu), a geek teacher in Paris, where he can’t speak, and starts learning chess.

Sylvain asks Fahim, who does something wrong during class. “Isn’t it fun? Parhim.”

Farhim asks back instead of answering. “When do you really play the game?”

“Chess is not a game. It’s a war between two souls. It’s the wildest sport. This is what Kasparov said. As a Russian master, he stared at opponents throughout the game. Like I’ll kill you.”

Sylvain’s intense answer eventually becomes a medicine for’desperate’ Farhim. Fahim, who only thought of winning unconditionally, would sacrifice his words and learn to gain more. This’smart sacrifice’ wins him in the finals.

On the eve of the Marseille Congress, Sylvain and the school students all visit a Bangladeshi refugee camp, where they are living next to bums in eastern Paris to find Fahim. Sylvain’s eyes looking at the dwarf and insignificant refugee camp soon become the audience’s eyes. Ask if you have ever been interested in refugees.

On the day of the tournament, a notification of deportation to his father, Nura, who did not receive a residence permit, falls into a crisis in the boy’s dream of Fahim.

“It’s really French. I’m just looking at the disaster. Stand still. I’d rather trust Santa now (rather than the government).”

Unlike Europe, where refugees and immigrants are acute, we still have a sense of distance, so we can watch a little leisurely, but the movie does not lose its pleasantness and kindness, despite political factors.
