When Vincent (Aurélien Recoing) is fired from his job, he cannot bring himself to tell his wife (Karin Viard) and son. Rather than reveal the truth, he spins a web of lies to conceal his situation. With his father's help, he rents an apartment in nearby Geneva and claims he's been hired by the United Nations. He escalates his lies further when he creates an investment scheme and asks friends to contribute. His deception soon threatens to overwhelm his life and his family.

What's disturbing is that this guy has a very loving family and good, decent friends. It's the man's relationship with his work that's troubling. The movie didn't really come together for me until the very last shot, where the themes of the movie that bubbled under the surface rise up in the subtle emotions of his face as a quiet trap close over him.
Some people may say, "Well, he is bored with his job, so what? Many of us are!" But I think that's merely the surface of what he is going through. He is a lost man desperately searching for meaning and passion in life. In that aspect, his struggles are like many of our daily struggles amplified, and deserve our sympathy.
The setting is a gray country side in the winter,the shots of the highway covered in snow twist my stomach in a feeling of discomfort.You can really sense the bleak and depressing mood of this film just from watching the the faces on the screen and looking at the cold landscapes which are very pronounced throughout the film.
Some may find the film boring,some may find it too depressing and some will love it.I love it.
