Synopsis

An executive manager, his wife and his family, at the moment when his professional choices are about to overwhelm them all. Philippe Lemesle and his wife are in the process of separating, their love irretrievably damaged by pressures of work. An executive working for an industrial conglomerate, Philippe no longer knows how to respond to the contradictory demands of his bosses. Yesterday they wanted a manager, today an executioner. Now he must decide what his life really means.

Director’s Statement

Philippe Lemesle moves amongst society’s winners, in the realm of executive managers, of the meritocracy, of what are typically known as “success stories”. How do you admit you’re in pain, that you’ve lost your way, when you are part of the social elite? To complain would be both obscene in the eyes of the less well-off and a sign of weakness— unforgivable in the eyes of his peers, and in his own eyes. In this world, you cannot—you must not—be weak. It’s forbidden, on pain of downgrading and being replaced by a younger, more dynamic counterpart, or another who won’t argue about what he or she is asked to do. In this world it seems one no longer enjoys the right of questioning the orders that come from on high and which must swiftly be imposed below. This is the story of a world splitting silently in two, of professional and personal lives foundering, of a world in which men and women in ties and too-tight suits increasingly struggle to find meaning.
