Morin explains this concept at the end of the film, explaining, “We wanted to get away from theater, from spectacle, to enter into direct contact with life.

    Take Sainsbury’s and Tesco for example, they went to court for their price campaign, but now the new campaign, the customer service comparison, has been sparkled among supermarkets. The cheap prices they offer is not enough for customers, so they could not cut corners on customer service as another way to have bigger market shares and better goodwill.
