Rules of the Game

Rules of the Game

Lolita hates to smile. Kevin doesn’t know how to sell himself. Hamid doesn’t like bosses. They are twenty. They have no qualifications. They are looking for work. Over six months, the coaches of an employment consultancy firm are going to teach them the attitudes and language required to get a job in today’s market. Through this apprenticeship, the film reveals the absurdity of these new rules of the game.

Claudine Bories, born in 1942, is a French director and scriptwriter. Patrice Chagnard studied Philosophy at the Sorbonne and directed TV documentaries. He was the president of ADDOC, a group that brings together French documentarists. Bories and Chagnard met at the ADDOC association in 1995 and have collaborated since 2005. THE ARRIVALS and RULES OF THE GAME were awarded at such international festivals as DOK Leipzig. // Films (selection): LES ARRIVANTES (The Arrivals, 2009, doc; CE '10), LES RÈGLES DU JEU (Rules of the Game, 2014, doc)
