Storyline

Alain tests video games. He's married, his wife Pascale loves him, and they have a spirited young daughter. But he's unhappy and wants a change, to what he's not sure. He quits. A job counselor suggests a training program operating bulldozers. They have casual sex; Pascale is unhappy with Alain's unfaithfulness. Alain enrolls in the training program: it's 18 weeks long and some distance from Paris, so he is home only on weekends. (He's a natural at operating bulldozers.) As his relationship with Pascale deteriorates, Alain befriends Manu, a young trainee who loves all things about bulldozers but is hopelessly inept at operating them. This friendship takes hold of Alain. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Interesting story, good acting
3 February 2000 | by (Glen Ellyn< IL) – See all my reviews

Mildly interesting story about a young husband and father, dissatisfied with his life, who decides to start afresh and learn a new job as a construction jig operator by going to a 16 weeks training class. While his relationship with his family get strained, he befreinds a young misfit with a passion, if not the skills, for big machinery. Good acting and good eye for details.
