Storyline

Matthieu and Eric are two brothers who work at the same factory as their father in Normandy. When his father is dismissed for smoking on the factory floor, Matthieu is incensed and tries to have him reinstated, in vain. His brother has just got married and, with a child and mortgage on the way, is reluctant to stir up trouble. Likewise, Matthieu's fellow workers refuse to get involved. Then tragedy strikes; Matthieu's father is killed in a road accident. Convinced that his father was driven to suicide, Matthieu resolves to have his revenge. His plan is to lure his boss's wife, Claire, into an affair and so make his boss a laughing stock. Seducing Claire proves easier than he could have imagined, but then the scheme goes awry. Matthieu and Claire fall in love. Written by Aline

Very human story, well told
7 September 2000 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie consists of an amazing story and good story-telling and good photography. It is basically the main character's feeling of revenge which is very moving - I think many at least once in their life had emotions like the working class son in Selon Mathieu. This feeling of being weak against a superior power - and as a result the desire to revolt against it. After I have seen this movie I kept asking myself whether revenge could ever heal a broken heart or whether the suffering only just starts when you are looking for revenge. The actor of Mathieu is great - I liked his way of expressing without words. 8/10
