Considering the long history of french movie making, this is only an OK movie. The topic/ story is very interesting and not to forget, current. The script should be a director's wet dream, but yet, the focus of the movie is too much on the central character, the way he interacts with his wife, his children and how he constantly drives a car using a cell phone. It almost seemed like the director tried to distract the viewer. The much better movie on a similar subject is "99 Homes". If you can forgive the current french movie makers that seemingly ignore their own history and the existences of Godard, Truffaut, Malle and Bresson, this is a watchable movie, but it could have been a lot better.
