"In The Measure of a Man, Vincent Lindon ... gives his finest performance to date as unemployed everyman Thierry, who must submit to a series of quietly humiliating ordeals in his search for work. Futile retraining courses that lead to dead ends, interviews via Skype, a workship critique of his self-presentation by fellow jobseekers; all are mechanisms that seek to break him down and strip him of identity and self respect.

We gave up after 20 minutes. It made its point within the first 5 minutes. We didn't feel it was worth watching for too long. Very predictable after the first few minutes.

This little film will test the viewer’s level of empathy for others. It exposes the bureaucracy of job training for people who will never get jobs after months and months of training. French actor Vincent Lindon won the Cannes award for best actor as he goes through all kinds of trials and tribulation forcing him to express a myriad of emotional responses: frustration, anger, cold-heartedness, fatherly love and joy that at least he has formed a loving family.
