DRama "In Zéro Défaut, on an autumn day, 28-year-old Michèle goes onto night shift in a French car plant. At the same moment, Farouk retires, after 35 years on the assembly line. Suddenly there is nothingness, silence. Michèle and Farouk are neighbours. They run into each other and talk. Jéremie is Michèle's husband, same age, same life. He's a crew head in the sheet metal workshop. Some time ago, he tried to make sense of it all. Today, day and night, he needs 'quality control' and 'zero defects'. A terrible story of a breaking couple, filmed with accuracy and subtlety. In Zéro Défaut, on an autumn day, 28-year-old Michèle goes onto night shift in a French car plant.
