Les Tonton Flingueres (Georges Lautner, 1963)

Worship, we see Lino Ventura take control of his construction equipment company with flying colors. The ex-gangster doesn’t lack the humor and charisma to embody a half-hearted, half-hearted entrepreneur.

An entertaining comedy that we watch endlessly!

Truth If I Lie (Thomas Gilou, 1997)

With a lightness, the first act of the series traces the chaotic beginnings of Eddie (Richard Anconina) material handler who was given chance at the Quartier du Sentier in Paris. Gradually, Eddie gains the trust of his boss and rises up through the ranks. Until the day when he offered to take the risk to conquer the competitive markets.

It is there that he takes the path of building a company full of pitfalls and successes in the second film.

We stand by the interpretation that every entrepreneur deserves his own climb and must one day take a risk to be successful.

perseverance of these great women

Joy (David, O. Russell, 2015)


Who says a simple mop can’t change the world? Whatever the case, it was a revolution for women in the 1950s.

Joy tells the story of this designer who became the queen of teleshopping with simple items like fabric hangers or mops without getting her hands wet.

Persistence and strength of conviction emerge from the very good interpretation of Jennifer Lawrence as a mother who is ready to do anything to bring her inventions to the masses.

Erin Brockovich (Steven Soderbergh, 2000)

Erin Brockovich

The brilliant Julia Roberts plays Erin Brockovich, an activist and dying legal assistant who won a major lawsuit over drinking water pollution in Hinkley, California.

Left unqualified in law, Erin Brockovich shows us that everyone can succeed with perseverance (and a little determination!) while having hope.

The Devil Wears Prada (David Frankel, 2006)

The film may have outlined the extraordinary career of Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of the famous daily Vogue. Still, it is the woman who comes out of the shadow that shines on the screen. Andrea Sachs, aka Andy (Anne Hathaway), a simple aid, shows courage, work, and perseverance to be accepted and recognized in the fashion world.

An inspiring story for those who walked down the ladder and who through merit and self-sacrifice managed to climb the ladder.

Innovations from digital giants

The Social Network (David Fincher, 2010)

Social Networks

From the youngest student to the youngest billionaire on the planet, this film tells the spectacular story of Mark Zuckerberg, a visionary and ambitious self-taught man. When he created “Facemash,” a site to rate the most beautiful girls at Harvard University, he had no idea it would become a firm with 2.27 billion users.

Don’t miss the thrilling story of an entrepreneur who turned the 21st century upside down.

Steve Jobs (Danny Boyle, 2015)

The biography of the well-known founder of Apple, Steve Jobs helps to understand the difference that the leading entrepreneur has always wanted in his products. His perfectionism is on display during the three major commercial launches mentioned in the film.

An inspiring cinematographic opus for anyone looking to reassure themselves in their madness! Innovative entrepreneurs are often misunderstood about their time.

It’s not just success stories

Starting a business also means exploring a business world that is sometimes brutal. Here are three really cool dark movies that made an impression.

99 francs (Jan Kounen, 2007)

99 francs

Octave, played by Jean Dujardin, is a copywriter. He also considers himself the king of the world! This face of Paris’ advertising agencies, voluntarily taken to the extreme, exposes the whims of an elite and demanding environment, the problems of drugs and corruption.

A smart journey to a better return to a healthy and rational entrepreneurial life.

The Wolf of Wall Street (Martin Scorsese, 2013)

Here we find a hideous Leonardo DiCaprio in the skin of Jordan Belford as the insatiable and ruthless businessman. A scathing critique of the finance world that traces the rise of a meteoric career to its abrupt fall.

The film serves to remind entrepreneurs that the thirst for power can be futile and dangerous.

The Law of the Market (Stephen Bridges, 2015)

Vincent Lyndon plays a 50-year-old man who finds a job as a security guard in a mass distribution. This French film plunges us into societal difficulties: unemployment, precarious work, employees’ mistrust of management. He shows the face of a manager who isn’t too loud and solidarity in a team that divides everything.

A fine shading example to pass up in favor of workers.

Choose the movie that inspired you the most, sit back and enjoy. nice session!
