THE TREE, THE MAYOR AND THE MEDIATHEQUE is a 1993 French comedy drama in which the socialist mayor of a small town faces opposition when he attempts to create an arts centre.

Suicide

During a conversation about a hypothetical post-apocalyptic future, a woman states that suicide would be preferable to mere survival, saying that suicide has 'a beauty' to it in comparison to meanness and degradation.

A man protesting a new building says he wishes he had a machine gun 'for when the workmen show up'. It is clear that he does not seriously intend to hurt anyone, however. Infrequent very mild bad language includes 'damn'.
