Office politics on celluloid

The French comedy ‘Le Placard’ (The Closet) a film with a wry satire on office politics will be screened at 3 pm on May 11 and at 6.30 pm on May 12 at Alliance Francaise, Colombo-7.

 Directed by Francis Veber the film stars Daniel Auteuil, Gérard Depardieu, Thierry Lhermitte, Michèle Laroque and Jean Rochefort.

When, François Pignon, a modest accountant in a rubber factory, learns that he is soon to be made redundant, his friendly neighbour proposes a scheme to ensure he keeps his job. If it were widely known that he was gay (even though he wasn’t), his boss wouldn’t dare fire him.

François agrees to go through the ruse and the very next day, a compromising photograph of François embracing another man lands on his manager’s desk. François’ job may have been saved, but things to do not turn out quite as he planned... The film in French is subtitled in English.
