2015 Cannes Critics’ Panel Day 6: Brizé “Le loi du marche” Should Lead to Future Employment for Lindon

Six features in, French filmmaker Stéphane Brizé hasn’t had a long history with the Cannes Film Festival. In fact, the one time Camera d’Or juror saw his debut 1999 film, Le bleu des villes land in the Directors’ Fortnight and after gigs such as Not Here to Be Loved (2005), Entre adultes (2006), César Award winning Mademoiselle Chambon (2009) and A Few Hours of Spring (2011), Murphy’s Law certainly did not have its place with a film on market laws. Nabbing his first Main Comp slot presence with Le Loi du marche (known to international auds as The Measure of a Man) this is the filmmakers third straight collaboration with actor Vincent Lindon. With Variety calling this “a companion piece to the Dardenne brothers’ “Two Days, One Night,” early press screenings that took place this morning pleased the small number of critics from our panel who did shore up to this tough lesson in economics and being strapped for cash.
