Storyline

The news causes consternation among the checkout assistants at Discount's, the local supermarket run by Sofia Benhaoui. Not only do they risk being made redundant due to the installation of automatic pay stations but they are also put in competition to determine who will stay who will be fired. The situation is intolerable, which drives several cashiers to react. But what to do?... After a heated debate, Christine (who has economic difficulties), Alfred (the oldest of the group and the most likely to be laid off), Emma (a single mother) and Momo (a young French Arab) agree to their co-worker Gilles'proposal: to steal goods from the supermarket and sell them at a low price in a social grocery of their own.

Raw, genuine, heartbreaking
23 May 2017 | by anoukandreSee all my reviews

The struggles and rebellion of the employees of a highly efficiency-oriented supermarket. When faced with an imminent "technical restructuring" of their working place that will leave most of them jobless, a group of employees decides to delve into illegal actions to milk the supermarket for all it's worth. They don't know yet that they'll start a little social revolution.

This movie feels real, looks real, sounds real. The brutality of poverty, the "everyday" kind of desperation, the resentful solidarity of those who are being f*cked over the same way. But also friendship, and warmth, and the deep generosity of misery. This movie is deep, and hurts, all the main characters have been broken and hurt in some way, and their gleeful joy of "sticking it to them" stands out all the more through it. But this movie doesn't indulge in angst, or manicheism. It's not a "social fairy tale". It shows the pettiness and the heroism of the little people, the gray outskirts of modern French society, the consequences of unforgiving meritocracy, all those unglamorous things one likes to ignore. It's harsh, and executed brilliantly.

The actors are outstanding, the dialogues so genuine my jaw dropped, the cinematography brilliant. Every character is fleshed out, the supporting cast is all kind of perfect. I clapped at my TV when the movie ended.
