The real life

Directed and written by Guillaume Terver

52 minutes


Statistics and analyses aside, how do young people really deal with “getting started in active life” ? How do they feel ? What do they hope for ? What aspirations do they have ? What hurdles do they have to overcome on their road to work ? Do we really know what they are feeling deep down inside ?

This film tries to answer these questions, not by compiling one story after another but by focusing on the path taken by Marine, Olivier and Thomas. From school to business, from childhood to adulthood, these three young cooks try to make their way into the job market. Full of energy and innocence, they prepare to “earn their lives”.




With the support of the CNC and the participation of the Ministère du Travail, de l’Emploi, de la Formation professionnelle et du Dialogue social, Délégation à l’information et à la communication (DICOM) and France Télévisions.
