An Arabic proverb says that

only three things determine a man:

Authority, wealth and misfortune.

I had the luck and the accident

to know all three.

Or that's a good thing

or making a bad person ...

I only know that you have nothing to do with money

if you die.

Do you know how much VA every year disappears in this country?

Almost 10 billion euros. Does that mean something?

My father has this company

Established 30 years ago.

I now manage it for 10 years.

I have to fight

to keep it up.

Despite all obstacles

yours and your bureaucracy.

I have never been too late.

You are an entrepreneur in trouble.

I am a tax inspector

with obligations.

I give you one week, no longer.

today is the last day of my existence

the last time I close my eyes

I have been looking for a solution for a long time,

now it seems obvious to him

I am no longer a copy, it is done

with the monotony, the lobotomy

today no shirt and tie

I'm not going to work

I will not give you a paw

day office people

with your permanent existence

if you get stuck,

that suits them well

that takes little place in their heads

it confirms them in their mediocrity

day meaty representatives

who never drink water

not to get wet

traders going to aftershave

and smell food

mayonnaise on their suitcase,

they eat that

day senile bookkeepers

day debil secretaries

with your stupid talk

day young frames,

with your new diploma

you are about corpses to reach the top

day great directors

open your golden parachute

when you are thrown out

they are out of desperate employees

but pretend they know nothing

sons of snobbish whores

they distribute three-quarters of the wealth

day little bosses,

civilian horrors

Collecting ADV days

for the summer holidays

Nono, what are these for pallets?

- Your friends have put it there.

Eric and Simon.

- Who?

Eric and Simon. They would explain it.

Hello Sonja, do I have a lunch appointment?

Yes, with DiMeco, from the transport union.

You have a table at one o'clock.

Tell him, and say to him

Laurent that he'll get there.

Did you buy that gift for Lucien?

- Yes, it's in your office.

Thank you.

- How did the appointment go?


Do you know someone who can lend me money?

I work hard, I pay everything back.

Nobody lends you something, in your situation.

Even if the market does not deteriorate further

goes, when do you pay that back?

The only solution...

is filing for bankruptcy, I'm sorry.

Sometimes a business is closing

the best solution.

This came from finance.

I did not even read it.

In the context of the Kyoto Convention ...

435 CO2 allowances with a value

of 13,747.49 euros.

I know that, that's the European one

Commission issuing CO2 rights.

The right to pollute. A company

that emits less than allowed ...

like yours,

because your cars are running on gas ...

may resell those rights.

You sell what you have too much

to polluting companies.

What does that mean?

- That you can collect that money.

You can not save your business with it,

but you are not going to give it to them.

Good evening.

You have a good reason

to be late, I hope?

A million in unpaid bills,

is that sufficient reason?

Do you do business with reason,

authority and good insight.

Had read Cicero,

before you collapsed in financial matters ...

of which you have the disastrous consequences

did not oversee.

A good manager ...

puts all his financial resources

for his business.

He performs his unique functions

responsibility and leadership.

He puts all his knowledge into it,

and if it goes wrong his honor.

I do not believe you are those qualities

in you.


- Your husband is a failure, Dana.

How do you want to save?

Do not want to insult me

where my family is.

Your wife is especially my daughter

and your son is my grandson.

The idea that they are by you

getting in trouble...

gives me the right to speak to you.

Whether you like it or not.

Do not you say anything?

- Please.

Shabbat shalom.

- Antoine ...

Forward, you must.


- I pass.


- Me too.

I do not care either.

- I'm coming.


It's that little accountant again

that you have bite.

Now my son can not study.

- Does he want that?

Are you sure he's yours?

Wizman, you have to look. Do you know?

What are you watching?

- Do you know her?

No, brother.

- Then who is that?

That is Noa van Stricht.

- Noa what?

Van Stricht, a model.

She is in magazines.

You will never f*** her without money.

And who is that?

- That guy, that's the big boss.

He is celebrating

because the VAT rises one percent.

That means 2 million euros for him.

I swear.


- The guy is called Atlan.

He has all phone shops.

And fake cases in Italy

Buy cell phones.

He sells them in France,

without paying VAT.

That bastard sews the state

for 30 million.

30 million?

- Yes.

How do you know that?

- Our mother was his nanny.

She manages his money

and Simon carries the suitcases with money.

To earn money, you have to risk

take if you have not studied.

Antoine does not sew anyone.

He works honestly.

Are you coming here?

- Once in a while.

Antoine Roca, a friend of mine. Simon,

my brother. This is Kamel, I box with that.

Come visit me, I have good stuff.

Are you boxing?

Have a nice evening.

What are those for acorns?

- Boxing friends.

Who are they?

- I do not know those in the Range Rover.

In the BMW, those are the Wizman brothers.

Who are talking to the porter,

that are huge bastards.

Kamel Dafri, Said Benarfa

and William Krutel ...

Criminals. Packed for violence

and drug smuggling.

Just out of the bin,

they already throw themselves into the nightlife.

Do we check them?

- No, we'll let them come back.

Find their place again, their self-confidence.

They are so stupid ...

We always pick them up again.

We only have to

to be a little smooth.

Where were you?

Poker with friends.

What is wrong with you, to walk away like that?

My father is worried about us.

- Your father is a bastard.

He dominates everyone with his money.

Money is his only quality.

At least he has a quality.

What are you blaming me for?

That I do not look like him?

I'd rather blow a guy than that.

- Do not talk about him like that.

I say what I want about him.

This is my house, I pay the rent.

What are you doing? You shop with your crazy

girlfriends and let your nails do.

I have been working 15 hours a day for 10 years

to make that possible.

And you let your father insult me.

Have you ever chosen my side?

I am the father of your son.

You wake up Tom.

- I do not give a hoot.

You always put it against me.

I really do see that.

He realizes that once, and then you are

only to pray on Friday night.

With your crazy father and your stupid mother.

Do I have to say it? He is right.

You are a failure.

- You do not stay with a failure.

Let yourself be stitched by your friends,

maybe you'll get ready

You leave, and now.

I feel sorry for you.

Do not you want to drink something?
