Louise Michel

Poster of the film Louise Michel

Without warning the workers, a boss decides to relocate his factory and moves all of its machines overnight. The workers then decide to pool their compensation and hire Michel, a professional killer played by Bouli Lanners, who turns out to be completely incompetent. It is Louise, an illiterate worker, who will have to assist him so that he can successfully carry out his contract.

Several scenes were shot in Guise and Saint-Quentin. The team went to the Familistère to shoot the scenes where Michel visits his father.
