A really good movie about the human dimension in French politics
20 September 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I'm French, I saw this one before its release in theaters in France. It is really, really very good. It gives a very good flavor of the politics world, uses and customs, men, women, and so on. You see how people handle power, how power ends up controlling them. At no moment it is a "left wing" or a "right wing" movie, but it really focuses on the human dimension of the people. It uses many historical details from former 5th republic presidents, such as Miterrand (left), Giscard (right), Chirac (current one, right), De Gaulle (right/center). Dupontel is really amazing considering the all different types of roles he can fit in. In Bernie, in Monique, in this one, he plays 3 totally different persons, but always very accurately and well. To sum up, this is worth seeing. The girl (president's daughter is really cute, though she is not the best actor in the movie). The dude (Mathieu) is doomed to be loved by girls, and it's true that he is nearly perfect.
