Well done
17 April 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Not so bad french film about a little town where politicians are pulling to get a new «médiathèque» (some kind of media center) for the locality. The cinematography is beautiful and the acting is very good. Interesting to see how politics sometimes work.

Out of 100, I gave it 76.
