Image for Heartbeat Detector

A psychologist discovers troubling links between Nazism and modern-day big business.

★★★★

The sanity of chemical company director Michel Lonsdale is called into question in Nicolas Klotz’s compelling take on François Emmanuel’s novel as Lonsdale’s ruthless assistant (Kalfon) orders Amalric’s in-house psychologist to monitor the eccentric behaviour that’s so concerning the head office. However, as Amalric begins his investigation, he soon realises that the firm’s shiny facade hides a murky past. Hinting that modern capitalism’s competitive spirit originated in the political excesses of the early 20th century, this is a searing indictment of corporate responsibility that will intrigue conspiracy theorists.
