40-year-old Vital, a shop workman in a textile mill, is chosen as a "guinea pig" by Alix, 25, a consultant who has come to the factory to conduct an ergonomic study. What this quiet and secretive man does not know (and what nobody knows for that matter) is that the young woman is actually the daughter of Baretti, the boss, on condition of anonymity. And what Vital did not expect (nor did anyone else) is that Alix would soon fall under his charm...Written by
I will speak here about a totally forgettable comedy drama where you find the usual stuff so common in the French cinema now. Economical crisis in a garment factory in which the boss's daughter is employed to optimize the employee's performance with ergonomic matters. The girl falls for one of the employees, who divorces from his wife. Nothing exceptional here, no surprise at all, only entertaining whilst you prepare dinner or iron your clothes. Clichés galore, so French, too much for my taste anyway. Social and emotional movie that I will forget in a few minutes. But good acting, nothing to argue about this. I don't regret to have watched it; we never know in French features, you may find a gem from time to time. But not here. That's the name of the game.
