Film review: ‘The Measure of a Man’ ★★★

The Measure of a Man, a third collaboration between French director Stéphane Brizé and veteran actor Vincent Lindon in just six years, is a pared-down social critique that charts the day-to-day drudgery of a man suffering the slings and arrows of economic recession. It’s far from a joyous viewing experience but fans of the Dardennes and Ken Loach will appreciate a bitterly honest slice of life.

The Measure of a Man is in cinemas from 3rd June – visit CineVue to read the full review ici.
