Merci patron! (Thank you, boss !) is a French documentary film directed by journalist François Ruffin. It was first screened in 2015 and was released nationally in France on 24 February 2016. The film is critical of the practice of outsourcing French jobs to foreign labour, and in particular it is critical of one of France's richest people, Bernard Arnault, chairman and CEO of the luxury goods conglomerate LVMH. The style of the documentary has been compared to that of the American director Michael Moore. The film's success has been cited as a factor in the rise of the Nuit debout movement.
