Numéro Une

TONIE MARSHALL
France, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, 2017
110 minutes, Color
Official website

This corporate intrigue benefits from what we knew was taking place even before the #BalanceTonPorc (France's #MeToo) movement took hold. From small sexist slights to outright sabotage, the gender battles in high finance are becoming more pronounced as women vie for their places as leaders. Emmannuelle Devos stars as Emmannuelle, an ambitious team leader in a wind turbine company. A feminist lobbyist group wants to make her the next CEO of a major water concern, the first such female head in France. A group of powerful men have something else in mind. Having set up these tensions, the film can be provocative by merely showing the suits, smug with their highballs; the glistening canyon walls of Paris's financial district, aptly named La Défense; and their spruce boardrooms cum man-caves. Look for New Wave star Sami Frey, now 80, as Emmannuelle's soft-spoken philosophy-professor father. Handsome is as handsome does.—Judy Bloch

In French with English subtitles
