Delete History

A film by Benoît Delépine & Gustave Kervern

Back
Three seemingly different individuals are stuck in the grip of the Internet world. Marie, divorced and depressed, is being blackmailed because of a sex-tape. Bertrand, deep in debt, must deal with his teenage daughter being bullied at school. Christine, a private chauffeur, has troubles with her clients’ ratings. Joining forces, they decide to march towards the root of their problems and confront the invisible tech giants. A playful satire, sprinkled with the celebrated seasoning of French comedy, that takes a look at our modern technological dependency and the repercussions these entail.
