A film by Jean-Christophe Meurisse (World Premiere, Cannes Midnights 2021)
The second feature from French director Jean-Christophe Meurisse is a vicious satire on contemporary life. At times hilarious, at others shocking – always provocative - the film pushes and pulls the viewer in every direction as it follows four moments in the lives of people in modern-day France. Blended together, they provide a deceptive look at three generations and a mix of social classes, allowing the director to highlight how the structural systems in France, and indeed much of Europe, protect the elite. In such a system, for the rest, winning means survival, not justice.
Press and Reviews
“A thought-provoking, graphic, ballsy political film. Imagine if Armando Iannucci made a horror film with Julia Ducournau, and then times that by ten” Kaleem Aftab, CineEuropa
