Anouk, a fourteen-year-old ninth grader, has to spend a week's work experience as part of her school curriculum. As she cannot get an internship at the TV channel she wanted to go to, her single mother Cyrielle, decides to enroll her at the insurance company where she works as a junior executive. Bad pick, because not only Anouk is given nothing more exciting to do than to "re-organize a storage closet" but she also discovers some nasty secrets the Serenita company keeps hidden. Nasty secrets her mother might have something to do with...Written by
The topic of this French film has never been told about before. At least, as far as I know. See for yourself. A fourteen years old girl, besides her school hours, goes with her mother to the place where she works - the mother - an insurance company. So far, nothing unusual. But the teen girl rapidly discovers nasty things about the insurance contracts. For instance, the company forges false documents so that the people who subscribed to a policy can NEVER get paid. Most times, people in great financial distress. Disgusting, nasty methods that make you puke. I myself was terrified. So the teenage girl intends to help one poor family involved with the forgery, although her mother is guilty of this awful swindle. You can be annoyed by the naive behavior of the teen, but if you watch the film very carefully, you can be very disturbed, especially when you realize that the story becomes totally unforeseeable. The ending is the kind of one you can't expect at all. No moral in this feature, as the real life. But you also have some humor scenes.
