Full Time

Eric Gavel, France, 2021, 87 min., feature film, OmeU

Since separating from her husband, Julie has been living with her two children in a Paris suburb. Her job as a chambermaid in a luxury hotel is just enough to keep the family afloat. There is a strike, and commuting between home and work becomes a test of endurance: Julie is regularly late, whether in the morning or after work when she picks up her children. She applies for a job in marketing research, her former field of work. Thereby the pressure increases further. FULL TIME, starring a phenomenal Laure Calamy, who won Best Actress at the 78th Venice Film Festival, among other awards, is a stirring social drama. It impressively shows how quickly professional and private existence can be threatened.
