Comme des Lions (Like Lions) is a 2016 French documentary by Françoise Davisse. It traces the struggle of auto workers in a factory in a poor suburb of Paris against PSA (Peugeot Citroën) management’s threat to close their plant. The title comes from the strikers’ slogan: “Let’s fight like lions!” The conflict is filmed “from the inside,” showing the workers debates, decisions about how to take their struggle beyond of the plant and gain support from workers across France.
