After almost two years of being unemployed and life on the dole, 50-year-old Thierry finally finds a job as a security guard in a supermarket. At first, it seems like he’s rid himself of his main problem, but Thierry soon encounters a dilemma: the management asks him to follow all of his coworkers and inform about any and all rule violations. What is a person prepared to do in order to protect a job which he has only secured with great difficulty?
A French anti-capitalist drama with Vincent Lindon in the main role. “The Measure of a Man” was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, and won for Best Actor (Vincent Lindon).
