Love Blanche Gardin as a standup she has a face that expresses extreme cheekiness. Here too she is excellent
The film mocks our digital lives as they have become more and more Ubuesque and the actors behind the scenes more dodgy manipulating when not downright criminal
It is set in Les Hauts-de-France (59 Nord 62 Pas-de-Calais) just below Belgium the most deprived part of Macronia ; a place which has been blighted with factory closures since Neo-liberalism reared its horrendous head. By 2020 it is a wasteland. If you want a US shortcut think Detroit
It has the feel of an Indie US movie quirky zany etc
So an ace place to set this essay on dysfunctional living in the nascent 21st century. Denis Podalydès
is also awesome here. There are vignettes here which will make you chuckle for days on end
PS there is a cameo appearance by writer Michel Houellebecq
