The searing drama from writer-director Jacques Audiard (A Prophet, The Beat My Heart Skipped).

Carla Bhem has worked as a secretary for a property development company for a long time. Her job, basically, is everything: from handling files and answering the phone to drafting estimates and dealing with suppliers. First to arrive in the morning, last out at night…And her reward? Be paid like a serf, treated like mud and ordered around like a dog.

Carla has had enough. She thinks she deserves better. Only trouble is, in a male-dominated society, what hope is there for a 35-year-old woman with a so-so physique and a hearing aid in both ears? The solution’s name is Paul Angeli, the new trainee she manages to have hired.

Paul is 25 years old and completely unskilled in property development – in fact, he’s clueless. But he makes up for it in other ways: he’s a thief, fresh out of jail, and good-looking. As the saying goes, ”It takes two to tango.”

She teaches him good manners and he teaches her bad ones.
The first results are instantly encouraging…
