Known for his explorations of the human condition in Mademoiselle Chambon, A Woman’s Life and The Measure of A Man, Stéphane Brizé once more comes up with a political film with the astonishing Vincent Lindon in the lead as the outspoken and fierce union spokesperson. At War tells the struggle of 1,100 workers as they decide to save their jobs at all costs after their factory is called to be shut. Filmed in just 23 days, At War presents the opposition between two points of view–the human and the economic dimension. Stéphane Brizé, who met with workers, HR managers, CEOs, and legal representatives of both the workers and employers before shooting the film to gain a balanced point of view, attempts to reassess this contrast by examining social and political dysfunctions in the 21st century.
