The father surgeon symbolizes the European and American world represented by the United States. He has a wife (UK), a daughter (France), and a son (Germany).
He performed operations on "patients" time and time again (democracy movement, military intervention, etc.), saving countries one by one from a critical "heart disease", how often would he walk by the river, how could he not get his shoes wet, one day His patient, Martin's father (Syria, Iraq, Libya...) died on the operating table, and he felt guilty, so he helped and cared for the patient's children (introduced a large number of refugees from these countries), in the film Take Martin and his mother as a metaphor; as a large number of refugees (Martin and his mother) enter the Western world (the family and life of the doctor), the family of the doctor is slowly affected and has an incurable disease (various refugee issues have social influence); but Martin thought it was the doctor who was paying his debts. Instead, he went into the doctor's home and workplace, seduced the doctor's daughter, threatened the doctor's son, trampled on the life of the doctor's family, and told the doctor to ask you to be a good person to the end. , use your family or yourself to pay for my father's life.
In the end, the doctor was helpless and paid a fatal price; it is self-evident that which Western country has the most serious refugee problem in reality? The result of the final roulette game is self-evident. At the end of the film, the doctor's family will never look up in front of Martin and avoid it. This symbolizes that the creators of the film believe that the European and American world will no longer be able to get rid of the immeasurable and huge impact of the refugee policy on their future social development and life. The end.

    The excellent work, which can be said to be my current favorite Lanthimos, still maintains a strong author style, but weakens the satirical innuendo of the previous works, and the pattern is more open. The atmosphere of the film is first-class, the language of the lens is very brilliant, the classical core is highly interpretable, and there is a strong sense of unfinishedness.
