  3. Diego Carrera's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    Devastating. I'm ashamed of being human.

  4. dave gunn's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    A very real portrait of what it means to be a working class man as you and everyone around you is strangled by the oppressive nature of capitalism.

  8. Machupi's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    Vincent Lindon always at its best, and when you know all the other actors weren't actors, were just picked randomly between strangers, this work is incredible

  9. Annie Gentil-Kraatz's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    Heart wrenching at times, following the main character looking for a new job and getting in some ways undermined and humiliated by the system. When he finally gets a job, prospects are not any better... Vincent Lindon is excellent, very humble and still full of dignity. Stéphane Brizé has a very distinctive voice and a soft way to deliver a very harsh message about France's job market.

  11. msmichel's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    Vincent Lindon won best actor at Cannes for this affecting portrait of a man who refuses to be beaten by the modern economic system and struggles to keep his family afloat even in being under employed. Brize adopts the Dardenne method here with little music and close handheld camera work and though some may find the film dry it's scathing view of its characters morality and breaking points is fascinating.

  13. José Neves's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    Christian Petzold or Farocki's cinematographic essays, for example, have already given a good account of what is happening in the corporatism of today's world of work, its technocratic dehumanization. This film does an activist figure when, in fact, it doesn't think anything else beyond the exposure of its protagonist and his confinement in an inability to think about/with the images, to "watch" the work.

  14. riraru's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    Sozialdramatische Charakterstudie mit langen Einstellungen, die zum Interpretieren einladen. Das muß man mögen, nicht wahr. Lindon wie immer großartig.

  15. -REM-'s rating of the film The Measure of a Man

  16. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    Beyond the amazing acting, the lovely film could serve as a discussion subject for management students studying human resource management. The film entertains sensitive thinking viewers by providing options on personal ethics one has to adopt to bring home the bacon on the table under trying circumstances.

  17. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    While the film is pastiche, the extremely strong performance by Vincent Lindon and the development of his character is what makes the film work and worth watching.

  18. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    Stéphane Brizé, who also co-wrote with Olivier Gorce, avoids sentimental manipulations and hurls an actual, urgent theme that mixes family, work, and morality.

  19. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    Vincent LINDON sait TOUT jouer. Par sa présence, son épaisseur, son mutisme, il donne une dimension à des rôles convenus ou des scénarios de qualité moyenne. C'est le cas de cette production commerciale.

  20. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    A realistic depiction of life in a Neoliberal society, a society of control (Deleuze), pervasive surveillance, maximization, benchmars, best-practices, metrics, flexibility, and the "Free Market". It's France, but could be almost anywhere. The super-market is the Foucaldian panopticon: we're all prisoners, guards included.

  21. Stephane Tanaka's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    On a compris le propos, pas tant besoin de l'appuyer...

  22. Kamran's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    [REVIEW] 75/100 - The Measure of a Man (Stephane Brize, France) Somewhat effective, and paints a clear picture of a disgruntled citizen whose dignity is made open for measure. Read more: http://nextprojection.com/2015/10/15/viff-the-measure-of-a-man/

  23. hubertguillaud's rating of the film The Measure of a Man

    En collant sa caméra au plus près du regard impavide de Vincent Lindon, comme un témoin impuissant de la décomposition du monde, Stéphane Brizé en révèle toute la violence. Un documentaire immersif qui nous montre les hommes se bafouer, cernés par la misère et les rapports de forces, jusqu'à n'en plus pouvoir. Un film qui appuie sur l'estomac, jusqu'à nous faire rendre cette violence sourde qui partout dégueule.
