About the Film
Thierry is unemployed. At the age of 51 and after almost two years of small humiliations in a search for work, he starts a new job that soon brings him face to face with a moral dilemma. How much is he willing to accept to keep his job? The Measure of a Man tells the story of a man and his conscience. Thierry will have to decide whether to stay and be an accomplice of an unfair system, or leave and return to a precarious and unstable life.
Great acting but slow
Vincent Lindon shines in this - it's a film about social injustice; poverty and people just trying to make ends meet. However it is grindingly show.
True to life
Semi styled documentary. Didn't hide the hard realities of life. A mature man finding it difficult to get a job faced with the indignities of a recruitment group mock interview.
Landing a job beneath his capabilities etc, etc. It seems that the sentiments experienced are the same worldwide.
Not an action packed movie. Real life can be such a drag!
