Les Deux Alfred (French Tech) is an upbeat yet moving comedy about characters overwhelmed by the modern world and new technologies, who need to stick together to get by.
Alexandre is unemployed and his bank account has been frozen. His wife is on a two-month top secret nuclear submarine mission. While she’s away, he has to prove that he can take care of the children and find a job. Following a surreal interview, he is hired at The Box on a trial basis – and thus Alexandre enters the 24-7 world of a greenwashed start-up with a strict no-child policy. He meets Arcimboldo, who juggles different jobs and apps and offers to look after the kids in exchange for accommodation. Between Alexandre’s killer colleague Severine, incessant conference calls and endless team building sessions, keeping his secret is no easy challenge… – Synopsis
« There are a lot of laughs, but behind the tenderness, humour and poetic charm, Bruno Podalydès’ film presents a chilling analysis of the world of business – particularly harsh for fifty-somethings – where algorithms rule and humans are becoming more like machines while machines become more like humans. ». – Cannes Film Festival
