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.

Real France
2 April 2021 | by zeikwoefSee all my reviews

Not exactly what Americans think about when they hear "France", not the superficial glamour of Paris nor the cosy picturesque of the Riviera, but the real France. The people of France in their day to day struggles in badly paid jobs and incertainty facing modernisation and robotisation. Everyone who is about to visit France should watch this first. Then one would understand the French better. (Except Parisians, who are overall shallow and spoiled).

This being said, the film is a jewel. Out of the initial marasm unfolds itself a surprisingly entertaining plot. Acting is supreme. Every one of them actors, every second of the movie: truer than true. I loved it.
