camille l Passionnant, dur et pourtant non denue d'humour, le film est parfaitement realise par un JEAN-MARC MOUTOUT qui n'oublie pas le rythme dans son histoire d'audit dans une entreprise de province. LAURENT LUCAS est prodigieux. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Troublant et toujours d'actualité... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member bof bof sujet interessant mais trop ennuyeux Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Most probably Jeremie Renier is the best spokesman on the big screen for various social issues taken place in France. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Proche du documentaire, une vision froide et cynique du monde du consulting Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
