“Les Identités Meurtrières” (The Murderous Identities) by Amin Maalouf, one of the elements who inspired the script of the film

Les identitées meurtrières d'Amin Maalouf“We should make sure that nobody is excluded from the common civilization twhich is being born, so that everyone can find in it his mother tongue, and some symbols of his own culture, so that every one is able to identify himself, even a little bit, to what he sees emerging in the world around him, instead of hiding in a glorified past

At the same time, everyone should be able to include a new element in what he believe his identity is, and make this element more and more important during the next century or the next millenium : the feeling of belonging to the human adventure”
