A mysterious and passionate film
12 August 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

The film describes the professional and extra-professional daily life of a band of John Doe providing maintenance within a nuclear power plant. They live in a few mobil-homes of a camping site. They are collectively lost, sometimes philosophers sometimes disillusioned. They survive as rebels without a real illusion about their future.

I recently saw this movie on Netlix that I chose based on the high-quality cast: Tahar Rahim, Denis Ménochet and Olivier Gourmet. With also Johan Libéreau, Léa Seydoux and Nahuel Pérez Biscayart. The director Rebecca Zlotowski seems to hesitate between the social satire and the hanky-panky, as if she were herself as lost as the characters of her own film.

As a synthesis: excellent acting in a film that seems unfinished. 5/6 of 10
