In about three weeks' time, Étienne Meunier, a big household products company executive, is about to become boss. If all goes well, 15.000 employees, will be under his guidance. Firm believer that the triptych of success is: "talent, hard work and some luck", Étienne, a once low-rank engineer, gradually climbed his way up to the top where he is now, a process that took him almost fifteen long years. Successful and accomplished in his work, he is married and in love with his boss's daughter, on the way to having their first baby. But life hasn't always been a bed of roses for him, a long-forgotten reality that he recalled upon, when one day out of the blue, Patrick Chambon, an old friend from high school some twenty years back, bumped into him.

Did You Know?


Étienne Meunier: Remember the other day when you asked why I hid things from you? I've thought about it. The problem is that you never really chose me.
Clémence Meunier: Excuse me?
Étienne Meunier: You're still their little girl. You were never really my wife. You didn't choose me. I chose you. I didn't have to marry the boss's daughter. I didn't need that to succeed. But when I saw you, I fell in love. You were funny, elegant and refined... You called me "sir". I'd never known anyone like you. And I said: "She's the woman I want to spend my ...

Biased critics
7 August 2015 | by (Bucharest, Romania) – See all my reviews

I don't comment often on movies, but this one got way too harsh critics and a way too low overall rating. There something going wrong on the internet with so many Indians and Chinese people (1/3 of the planet population) being biased when rating not Bollywood, not Chinese and not Hollywood movies. Or too many got influenced too easy by other people's opinions, otherwise I cannot explain it. This is a very good movie, the fact that the suspense was not constant makes it more credible, (more life-like), the ups and downs makes it more credible too, the fact that the actors didn't exaggerated their play makes it more credible too, the fact that the ending was not orgasmic makes it different and thus more credible too, everything was just perfect IMHO. I gave it 9/10 instead of 10/10 just to be more credible (and because I have a keen critical sense and I'm not at all a nice person), but I secretly believe it deserved a 10 although it's hard to admit this in public.
