Vincent Lindon gives his finest performance to date as unemployed everyman Thierry, who must submit to a series of quietly humiliating ordeals in his search for work. Futile retraining courses that lead to dead ends, interviews via Skype, an interview-coaching workshop critique of his self-presentation by fellow jobseekers all are mechanisms that serve to break him down and strip him of identity and self-respect. A powerful and troubling vision of the realities of our new economic order.

“ Uncompromisingly authentic, impeccably played and quietly compelling."
Patrick Peters, Empire Magazine
