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.

L'incident provoque la croissance jusqu'à échelle humaine d'une puce, dont la présence a tôt fait de terroriser la capitale. Désespéré, le monstre trouve refuge chez Lucille qui, émerveillée par sa voix et ses talents de musicien, décide de former un duo avec lui. Or, même déguisé, celui que l'on a baptisé Francoeur risque de ne pas pouvoir échapper éternellement au préfet Maynott, déterminé à le ca [...]

To crack his cases he peels back the veneer of seemingly idyllic villages and neighborhoods, exposing the criminals who lurk in all levels of society. Against a backdrop of 1950s Paris and the surrounding French countryside, these original feature-length films pay homage to one of the most brilliant detective minds of the twentieth century." -- Back cover of container.

Ne Me Libérez Pas Je M'en Charge

Loading...
Michel Vaujour, former thief and mobster, always chose making a break for freedom over a life behind bars, adventure over a life of submission. He has spent 27 years in prison, 17 of those in solitary confinement. He succeeded in carrying out amazing escapes with toy guns, worthy of a Hollywood script, including a daring helicopter breakout from the roof of a jail. He was finally released on parole in 2003. This documentary is an uplifting and universal story of a remarkable transformation. Michel Vaujour's greatest escape was not from jail but from himself. The liberation of the mind and ultimately, the soul. His isolation forced him to continuously confront himself. The reward has been self-enlightenment. Written by Warsaw Film Festival
