Le Coup de Sirocco

Loading...
"The "pieds-noir" were Algerians of French heritage who were forced to return to France in 1962, when Algeria became independent. The Narbonis run a little grocery in Algeria and keep their noses out of politics entirely. They are content to mind their own business, in the hopes that others will be equally sensible. Thus, they are bewildered when, in 1962, they are forced to leave what has by now become their native land for the strange country of France. Their adjustment to life in France is aided by the same stick-to-business attitudes which earlier gave them difficulty. Nonetheless, they experience a number of setbacks, as when a slick Parisian (Michel Auclair) tries to talk them into going into business with him." -- UniFrance website.

La Ligne de Partage des Eaux

Loading...
The watershed lies within the perimeter of the Loire catchment area, from the source of Vienne on the Millevaches plateau to the estuary. The watershed, not the Loire river! That is to say the plane inclined towards the sea, the totality of the irrigated space, not only the line of the river. That is, business parks and wetlands, ditches and highways, meeting rooms and building sites. Because water is everywhere, in the ground, in the groundwater, in the air, circulating, infiltrating, evaporating and everywhere connecting the territories between them, denoting their interdependence, making us dream of their solidarity. The watershed is not only this geographical line that separates watersheds but it is also the political line that connects individuals and groups who have someth [...]

La Loi du Marché

Loading...
"In The Measure of a Man, 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, a workshop critique of his self-presentation by fellow jobseekers; all are mechanisms that seek to break him down and strip him of identity and self respect. In his award-winning performance, Vincent Lindon is quietly heartbreaking, revealing the soul of the unemployed"--Container.
