The César Award-winning star of Call My Agent! Laure Calamy again demonstrates her phenomenal talents in this nerve-flaying French drama.

Julie (Calamy) is a frazzled mother of two, just about making ends meet through her job as the senior maid at a posh Paris hotel and the sporadic alimony payments from her ex. Up at sunrise to prep her kids for school before a long commute, her life is a constant, precarious balancing act in which not one moment can be wasted. So when an interview for a better job - one that might just haul her out of a cycle of debt - coincides with a paralysing transport strike, it’s a nightmare of epic proportions that pushes her into a frenetic race against time.

Winning Best Director and Best Actress awards at the 2021 Venice Film Festival, Full Time recalls other films about individuals under duress and against the clock, such as Run Lola Run and Uncut Gems, with its grippingly tense editing and rhythmic score.

"The film is a master class in reactivity, and [Laure] Calamy manages it with perfect dramatic pitch." Chicago Tribune
