Vincent Lindon shines in this - it's a film about social injustice; poverty and people just trying to make ends meet. However it is grindingly show.
Thierry is unemployed. At the age of 51 and after almost two years of small humiliations in a search for work, he starts a new job that soon brings him face to face with a moral dilemma. How much is he willing to accept to keep his job? The Measure of a Man tells the story of a man and his conscience. Thierry will have to decide whether to stay and be an accomplice of an unfair system, or leave and return to a precarious and unstable life.
