At War Film Poster


En Guerre Director Stephane Brize and actor Vincent Lindon (the superb ‘The Measure of a Man’) team up again for this chronicle of a factory strike in the South of France. As the pugnacious union spokesman at an auto parts manufacture, Laurent Amedeo (Lindon) is vocal and outspoken. Along with the other employees he has no choice but to try, by any means necessary, to prevent their only source of livelihood from going under. ‘At War’ is a belligerent and vicious political battle, with intelligent arguments put forward fairly on both sides. Critically acclaimed in Cannes last year, the film is in the Ken Loach tradition “Another role ideally suited to Lindon’s knack for portraying decent guys trying to do their best under daunting circumstances” - Screen Daily. Cast Vincent Lindon, Melanie Rover, Jacques Borderie, David Rey, Olivier Lemaire, Martin Hauser, Jean Grosset. France 2018 Stéphane Brizé 112m
