Je ne suis pas un salaud

Emmanuel Finkiel France, 2015

MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film A Decent Man

This could be the unofficial sequel to Stéphane Brizé's La Loi du marché (The Measure of a Man). The two are definitely set in the same universe, so to speak. Nicolas Duvachelle and Vincent Lindon embody the same character: a frustrated, emasculated, white, middle-aged man French citizen who is on the bring of exploding. I wonder if these movies are prefiguring France's upcoming alt-right turn.
