Although he has lost his job, Michel lives happily with Marie-Claire. They've been in love for 30 years, are fulfilled as parents and grand-parents, have close friends and are proud of their trade union and political battles. This happiness is shattered along with their French window when two young armed and masked men hit them, tie them up, pull off their wedding rings and make off with their credit cards. Their distress is all the more acute when they find out the attack was organised by a young worker made redundant at the same time as Michel.
« On retrouve la petite musique humaniste et populaire de Guédiguian, scandée par les cigales, et on se laisse embarquer dans cette fable militante, volontairement utopiste et revigorante, qui réussi à ménager le suspense. » (Barbara Théate, Le Journal du Dimanche)
« Ce film est une des réussites majeures de Robert Guédiguian, qui va droit au but et touche à l'os, incisif, mordant, fouillant les plaies qu'il a lui-même ouvertes. » (Pascal Mérigeau, Le Nouvel Observateur)
