I'll watch any movie with the actor Francois Damiens in it. Usually he's quite funny, but this is a serious role and a serious film about the search for identity among the French, who lately have been struggling with the influx of refugees coming from a culture vastly different from their own.

My best guess on the "cowboy" theme - a rural town in Eastern France has cowboy festivals complete with country western dancing - is that it possibly represents the perceived invasion of French culture by America after WWII. While they eventually came to terms with that, now they fear being overwhelmed by a culture that seems less benign, more foreign and menacing, and it scares them.
My sense that the director is trying to capture that fear.

One of the worst French films I have ever seen. Basically an anti-muslim propaganda film. Truly embarrassing and waste of time.

Fulfillment of an obsession, but in a very strange way.
