‘Un Homme Pressé’ (A Man in a Hurry) follows Alain, a workaholic businessman who has lost himself in his task-oriented life. A stroke changes everything for him and he must rebuild his life with a physical therapist. Director Hervé Mimran was inspired by the story of former Airbus CEO Christian Streiff, who suffered a stroke ten years ago, requiring him to restructure his life. The film, poignantly and hilariously crafted by Mimran, is not just a look at the rebirth of a man, but an inspection of the systems to which we offer our lives.
• THE MOVIE:
Alain is a business executive who’s racing against time. There is no room in his life for leisure or family. After a massive stroke, Alain wakes up in a hospital, where it is quickly determined that he has sustained significant loss of language and memory. Jeanne, a young speech therapist, is assigned to help him re-learn, as a child learns, how to speak and how to put himself back together. As he recovers, he begins to see that he has let a whole section of his life slip through his fingers. But he also finds that all is not lost, that he can make up for lost time, especially with his daughter.
“Around this efficient duo, the film constructs its life lesson. Faced with the madness of a world that gallops without purpose – ready to trample on the weak – it rallies effectively for a return to humility, for the need to give close attention to those we love.” – Culturebox
