Don't waste your money
19 April 2012 | by LeoDRKSee all my reviews

I saw this film at BAFICI and I swear I love French films. But this one did everything in order to put me to sleep. I did see it until the end, anyway. The story isn't the problem here, as this documentary talks about a small company, its owner and employees. And deals with the usual problem a company gets into with a bad management. The problem is this film is way too long and slow. I guess Simon could fix this by removing about 30 minutes of repeated concepts. That way this film would be suitable for cinema. Just like it is right now, you can see it on a TV channel. With some commercials in the middle to wake you up. The last scene is the best one out of the whole film.
