Jolivet takes on a multinational
Shooting on La très très grande entreprise (“The Very Very Big Business"), the 13th feature by Pierre Jolivet (Zim and Co. [+see also:
film profile], Could This Be Love? [+see also:
film profile]) got underway yesterday in Paris.
The film, which looks at the battle of ordinary citizens against a polluting multinational, stars Roschdy Zem, Marie Gillain, Jean-Paul Rouve and Adrien Jolivet.
Co-written by the director and Simon Michaël, La très très grande entreprise centres on the pollution of a lake caused by a large agrochemical group with a turnover of €9m. But a group of friends who live by the lake (a blue-collar worker, an oyster-farmer, a restaurateur and an accountant’s assistant) decide to launch a campaign against the company. If not impossible, their mission turns out to be extremely difficult.
Shooting will take place in Paris until February 12, then in the South of France from February 15-March 22.
Also co-producing, Pathé will release the film domestically in the last quarter of 2008 and handle international sales.
