Revisiting elements of his 2005 film Not Here To Be Loved, French writer/director Stéphane Brizé’s compelling humanist drama follows unemployed, middle-aged factory worker Thierry Taugourdeau (Lindon) and his increasingly demoralising attempts to find work.
He faces indifferent HR managers and awkward interviews on Skype, as well as pressure from his bank to sell the home he shares with his wife (de Mirbeck) and their disabled son (Schaller). When he finally finds employment as a security officer at a large supermarket, he is confronted with moral dilemmas which oblige him to fundamentally reassess his role in life.
Like the Dardenne brothers’ Two Days, One Night, Brizé’s affecting film reflects the changing, depersonalised face of France’s once socially supportive economy. Vincent Lindon is magnificent as the doleful hero.
