Emilie, one of the Human Resources Managers at the Esen multinational, has recently been chosen by her superior Stéphane Froncart for her elegant ruthlessness. She indeed has the ability to find the words which persuade employees or executives judged redundant to resign, even if it takes a long time before they give in. She performs her task without moral compunction until the day when one of the employees targeted, Didier Dalmat, kills himself by jumping out of the window of his office. Not only is she deeply upset by this tragedy but she soon realizes that the firm's top brass want to have her take all the blame.Written by
How to get rid of an employee without firing him...
You deal here with one more depressing film about the everlasting problem of harassment and over strain in big companies. The meat chopper, the human slaughterhouses of the modern era where employees and managers are considered as animals, cattle, expendable stuff. After LA LOI DU MARCHE and CAROLE MATHIEU and many other movies since one decade now, if you are yourself in deep misery because of your job and - or manager, on the edge of lethal burnout, limit to jump through your office window from the tenth floor, so, PLEASE, don't go to see this outstanding but realistic feature not for all audiences. You have been warned. Lambert Wilson has never been so terrific as a nasty and ruthless executive and Celine Salette awesome as a Human Resources manager. A pure gem.
