Denis Podalydès (l.) mimics president of France Nicolas Sarkozy in The Conquest.

The 2011 movie biography The Conquest chronicles the rise to power of Nicolas Sarkozy, the president of France.

The film kicks off in early 2002, when up-and-coming politico Sarkozy (Denis Podalydes, The Da Vinci Code) first begins laying the groundwork for his presidential campaign. making his move on the presidency. Currying favor with his predecessor Jacques Chirac (Bernard Le Coq, The High Life) and sparring gamely with his glib rival Dominique de Villepin (Samuel Labarthe, Strayed), Sarkozy is depicted as a bold and unashamed virtuoso of political combat. It’s Sarkozy’s inattention to his disintegrating domestic partnership that results in his second wife, Cécilia (Florence Pernel, Blue), leaving him for good on the day he is elected president of France in 2007.

Written and directed for maximum dramatic and satiric punch by Xavier Durringer, »
