Cécile de France,
That's the perfect kind of story that the French movie industry shows to us since a long while now. At least, the basic line, not the whole. The topic is about a ruthless big executive, played by a very convincing Laurent Laffite, who works for a big broadcasting company and who stops at nothing to be the nastiest possible with his fellow colleagues and employees. The perfect SOB...As Lambert Wilson in CORPORATE. But one day, he has a big accident, or more exactly a colleague of his, as revenge, tries to kill him and then his life collapses. You have here a very strange and eerie tale, which is difficult to tell without spoiling it...But this film makes you think of many things about the true meaning of life. And love. Useless to be an intellectual to appreciate this film, only be smart and that will make it.
