Despicable Me 3

As so often happens, I find berets in places where I least expected them.Going to the movies, watching Despicable Me 3 with my youngest one for example...
Sitting mid cinema with a large Plato Grande on my head, the screen suddenly fills with a whole bunch of country hicks, all fitted with large berets. 
They are clearly based on Basques (complete with neckerchiefs, dances, etc); in the same scene features a very stereotypical Roma (Gypsy) woman (spitting, cursing, wart on the face, long skirts, the whole works...) as if the term 'political correctness' hasn't been coined yet. 
Alas, all attention is still attention; long live the beret!
