Riens du tout (English:Little Nothings) is a 1992 French comedy film directed by Cédric Klapisch. The screenplay was written by himself with Jackie Berroyer. It features Fabrice Luchini, Daniel Berlioux, Marc Berman, Jean-Pierre Darroussin, Odette Laure, Zinedine Soualem, Simon Abkarian and others.


For his first full-length film, Cédric Klapisch relates the story of a Parisian department store through its employees. A new director, Monsieur Lepetit, is named at the head of the company so as to save it from bankruptcy. To this end, he decides to create a company spirit with group psychotherapy, bungee jumping and other tricks. In this first film Klapisch's main purpose was to show the difference between the behavior of a person when he is alone and when he is in a group. In order to show this, he filmed the employees during their commute, at work and in other scenes of daily life, which made Klapisch style's reputation. This topic will become recurrent in many of his films. At the end of the film he succeeds in saving the company, nevertheless the store is sold to build a hotel.
