COMEDY / FRANCE / 2022 / 85 MIN / M
A hilarious comedy à la française! From South America to Sweden, Employee of the Month will make you cry with laughter and take the audience on an overdue journey around the world.
Jérôme Commandeur (Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion, AF FFF19) produces a satire full of twists and turns, poking fun at France and its public service, but kindly and with tenderness.
An irresistible force meets an immovable object when a zealous ministerial inspector (Pascale Arbillot), determined to do everything in her power to make cuts in civil service spending, comes up against Vincent Peltier (Jérôme Commandeur), a peaceful civil servant at the Water and Forestry Department in Limoges. As far as he’s concerned, his job, is “guaranteed for life”!
The war of nerves has only just begun when she transfers him to some of the must inhospitable places on Earth, including the North Pole!
Commandeur will have the audience in hysterics turning mundane office politics to the adventure of a lifetime!
