Astonishing drama besides which Georges Orwell's world is Disneyland.
One more example of what the French movie industry can make and show about the true and realistic life, and I would say fight, which many people have to face in their daily burden. So real that you may feel dizzy, especially if you have been yourself through such issues in your existence, family and - or - work. The so true picture of a doctor who is also an employee in a big phone platform company, a company where the God Word is PERFORMANCE AT ALL COST, even the employee's health, employee's life. Strain, misery, despair are unfortunately the other corollary words of this awful terrible unbearable way of life. The survival of those poor people, those victims of this another kind of war against an unavoidable faith. Inspired from a Marin Ledun's novel, itself inspired from actual events. Isabelle Adjani is herself involved at one hundred percent in the doctor's role, also a victim of this tyrannical system where the physician must be the associate of the manager's rules: push the employees to the limit, to the human resistance limit. Not for all audiences. If you have been fired from your job, if you are in distress with your supervisor, if you are depressed, please, don't watch this movie, or you'll have to prepare the full tablets tube for a long long sleep...
