A woman's world
11 October 2017 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

This is the story of a woman in her forties who is a big executive in a huge company and whom is offered the possibility to become the big big executive. And this character, played by Emmanuelle Devos is not ruthless at all, although being pretty ambitious. But not at any cost, as we could have expected. At least me. I would have preferred this scheme. Unfortunately, it is rather predictable, boring, but not corny either. A film made by a woman and for women. Why not?
