| French film director Arnaud Desplechin suggests that world of business is very strange.
Most of the viewers tend to bring to minds films such as "Rogue Trader" and "Godfather" whenever business world is evoked.However,there is a marked difference in the manner worlds of businesses are filmed by European cinema and American cinema.European cinema relies more on depicting psychological traits of various characters whereas American cinema prefers showing external appearance of events in form of action. French film "En Jouant 'Dans La Compagnie Des Hommes" provides viewers with glimpses of treachery in the world of business.Its unusual filming approach makes this film a nerve wrecking visual experience.French director Arnaud Desplechin mixes elements from cinema and live theater to creative a soul stirring visual effect which is both creative as well as enjoyable."En Jouant Dans La Compagnie Des Hommes" also has its own family drama scenario which testifies that blood is thicker than water.It is created to depict how an outsider has to remain a virtual outsider even though one expresses every possible willingness to learn tricks of the trade.This offbeat film by Arnaud Desplechin is not suitable for all tastes as it does not have any crowd pleasing elements like those of Oliver Stone's film "Wall Street".
