A Man in a Hurry


FRANCE | Subtitled

Directed by Hervé Mimran
Starring  Fabrice Luchini, Leïla Bekhti, Rebecca Marder 

"With humor and irony... the film proposes a more than lucid view about the dehumanization of capitalism and the renewed need to be loved." Cinemania

Alain is a high-profile businessman who has let his personal life lapse in favour of corporate success. When he suffers a major stroke and wakes up in a hospital room, he finds himself stripped back to zero. With the help of speech therapist Jeanne, he rebuilds his life and the relationship he shares with his daughter.

Betraying the seriousness of its storyline, A Man in a Hurry is a surprisingly amusing take on physical rehabilitation, thanks to stage theatre and screen star Fabrice Luchini who uses language to pitch-perfect comedic effect – specifically drawing on the verlan slang and its backwards pronunciation of words.

Based on a memoir by the former head of Peugeot, Christian Strieff, the film serves as a wakeup call for those of us enslaved in the unrelenting arduousness of contemporary existence. What happens when your life suddenly flashes before your eyes?
