Des vents contraires est un film français réalisé par Jalil Lespert, sorti en 2011, adapté du roman Des vents contraires, d'Olivier Adam, publié en 2009.

Synopsis

L'écrivain Paul Anderen, marié et ayant deux enfants, voit sa femme disparaître brusquement et ce, sans aucune explication. Après un an de vaines recherches, il décide de déménager pour s'éloigner de lieux devenus pénibles et renoue avec sa famille, oubliée depuis longtemps, quelque part dans la région de Dinard/Saint-Malo. Il démarre alors la reconstruction de sa vie, d'autant plus difficile, qu'il ne sait pas ce qu'est devenue sa femme.

The film depicts approximately 19 consecutive hours in the lives of three friends in their early twenties from immigrant families living in an impoverished multi-ethnic French housing project (a ZUP – zone d'urbanisation prioritaire) in the suburbs of Paris, in the aftermath of a riot. Vinz (Vincent Cassel), who is Jewish, is filled with rage. He sees himself as a gangster ready to win respect by killing a cop, manically practising the role of Travis Bickle from the film Taxi Driver in the mirror secretly. His attitude towards police, for instance, is a simplified, stylized blanket condemnation, even to individual policemen who make an effort to steer the trio clear of troublesome situations. Hubert (Hubert Koundé) is an Afro-French boxer and small time drug dealer, the most mature of the three, whose gymnasium was burned in the riots. The quietest, most thoughtful and wisest of the three, he sadly contemplates the ghetto and the hate around him. He expresses the wish to simply leave this world of violence and hate behind him, but does not know how since he lacks the means to do so. Saïd – Sayid in some English subtitles – (Saïd Taghmaoui) is an Arab Maghrebi who inhabits the middle ground between his two friends' responses to their place in life.

La Société pharmaceutique Muller organise une réunion de coaching de ses cadres, afin d'optimiser leurs performances et d'attribuer potentiellement de nouvelles affectations pour certains d'entre eux. Les mises en situation et évaluations se succèdent dans l'ambiance glaciale d'un château, entre petits fours et récitals de chant lyrique menés par le DG de la Société. Les rôles de chacun apparaissent peu à peu et la finalité de cette réunion finit par percer : la vente future de l'entreprise à un grand groupe va entraîner la fusion des activités et des compétences, aboutissant au licenciement de 10 % du personnel-cadre, qui doit être en conséquence précisément défini.
