Forgotten movie title...

Help me remember the name of a movie, please? Here's what I (think) I remember: 90s or 00s setting, foreign-language with subtitles, set in European local, possibly Scandinavian, overcast skies, commuting to work via train. Plot revolved around a man who lost his job, but did not tell his family, he just kept going into the city every day. Fuzzy on anything else...

It's bizarre that neither Wikipedia nor IMDB mention this, but Time Out was based on a nonfiction book by Emmanuel Carrère called L'Adversaire. There was a film of the same name made in 2002, just one year after Time Out. I haven't seen either movie but the original book is one of the most thrilling nonfiction books I've ever read.
