After social dramas At War and The Measure of a Man, Stéphane Brizé explores the world of corporate work.

Vincent Lindon plays Philippe, a workaholic executive, opposite Sandrine Kiberlain as his long-suffering wife, brought to breaking point by the demands of his job, the man she loves having slowly allowed himself to be consumed by the pressure. An executive in an American industrial group who is caught between a rock and a hard place, Philippe no longer knows how to satisfy his superiors’ demands and is running out of steam.

“Nerve-wracking look at a French factory boss obliged to lay off his staff." - The Hollywood Reporter

Screening as part of the 29th French Film Festival UK.
