Vincent (Aurelien Recoing) seems to contentedly spend weeks on the road, busy with business trips and meetings. He shares vague details with his loving wife, Muriel (Karin Viard) and their three children. But Vincent\'s professional life is fiction. Unable to bear telling family and friends that he lost his consulting position weeks ago, he invents, in meticulous detail, a prestigious new job for himself in Geneva. But telling lies becomes a full-time occupation and, to maintain his lost income, he betrays even his friends in shady investment deals. All Vincent wanted was a release from a suffocating professional life, yet somehow allow his family\'s life to continue as before. Now, the ever-growing tension of Vincent\'s world is quickly closing in... Laurent Cantet\'s award-winning, intimate and absorbing film features a stunning lead performance from Recoing.
