Jérémie Rénier stars as Philippe Seigner, an ambitious young executive at a management consulting firm. Things are going well for him at work and he starts dating single mom Eva (Cylia Malki). Soon his boss, Hugo Paradis (Laurent Lucas), chooses him for a special job auditing a company outside of Paris. When Philippe realizes that he's been effectively downsizing a company, he begins to feel a moral opposition to his task. Work Hard Play Hard was nominated for the Golden Leopard at the 2003 Locarno International Film Festival.
