Summary A psychologist working for a large corporation discovers a startling link between big business and Nazism.
"Simon [is] the staff shrink for the French branch of a German-owned petrochemical company called SC Farb. Something is amiss at Farb, notably its faltering, failing chief executive, Mathias Jüst. . . The shadow of the Nazi death camps hangs over the late-capitalist world sketched in this film."--Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.
