) 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.

Also co-producing, Pathé will release the film domestically in the last quarter of 2008 and handle international sales.
