The trailer looks dreadfully overwrought, and when the film was first shown on the BBC last month it got such a chilly reaction from UK critics that it prompted this response from one of the film-makers.

The BBC, which co-produced this film, describes it as a 'documentary by Italian director Annalisa Piras and former editor of The Economist Bill Emmott, which explores the crisis facing Europe', but it 'includes fictional scenes, set in a post-EU future' (hence the question mark in the headline). The film aired on the BBC on 1 March and will be shown on German and French TV later this month, but you can pay to watch it on demand.
