Movie Info

La Ciotat, the South of France. Antoine attends a summer writing workshop in which a few young people have been selected to write a crime thriller with the help of Olivia, a famous novelist. The creative process will recall the town's industrial past, a form of nostalgia to which Antoine feels indifferent. More concerned with the fears of the modern world, the young man soon clashes with the group and Olivia, who seems at the same time alarmed and captivated by Antoine's violence.

  • "The Workshop" never lets us know exactly what anyone really thinks. These tantalizing clues only add to the film's allure.

    Apr 10, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The leads are excellent...anchoring Cantet's sincere, complex mixture of discourse and voyeurism, as if the undiluted teacher/student naturalism of his 2008 film "The Class" had fermented into something more volatile.

  • The film keeps you guessing, not only as to where the story's going but what kind of film it will turn out to be.

    Mar 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A thoughtful reflection on the sociopolitical narratives (and myths) of contemporary, crisis-ridden France.

  • An intimate and timely film ...

  • Cantet remains a gifted filmmaker ... but this isn't the return to form that his fans have awaited over the past decade.
