Storyline

Christophe agrees to be filmed by his roommate Stéphane, while he is searching for a meaningful engineering job. Since he voluntarily resigned his job when he was to be moved to quality control, he does not get unemployment benefits, and goes to classes on how to contest the decision. Christophe sells his car, while Stéphane receives more funding for the film, and can hire a sound man. However, the crew following Christophe with a camera is a hinderance in his job-hunting. After spending the night with Christophe, his girlfriend Odile, an artist working as a supermarket cashier, takes over the camera and films the roommates as they get up. Finally Christophe finds a few days work dismantling machines for a company that is moving to Mexico, but his cameraman causes problems after interviewing the president of the company in the washroom.

Clever and genuine, facing reality with wit!
25 February 2004 | by (Montréal, Québec) – See all my reviews

The misconception and the high expectations that University students have about the ideal job can be deceiving, facing the reality of the availability (or lack of) of works without compromising their principles is harsh. The concept "documentary" that Philippe Falardeau choose is the perfect example of Québec way to resolve the problem of lack of money to do a movie. And it works perfectly. Some of the dialogues in this movie are simply sharp and clever. Falardeau found a great way to expose the contingencies of the real world that we live in by following a young man freshly out of school ready to conquer the world.
