This feature tracks Charles De Gaulle's career from 1939 to 1959, mixing fiction and archives. It gives an overall interpretation of his personality, his political tricks, and of his intimacy, especially with his family (wife and children). On obviously a not easy subject, Bernard Stora managed to make a credible feature. Bernard Farcy, not trying to imitate the "great man", gives an honest acting. But, strangely enough, the best characters (and very close to the originals) are in the second roles, especially Churchill and Malraux. On the negative side, the choice of shooting fiction on video (HD) does not seem the best choice, especially because it does not match with archive footage; besides, fiction images are very ugly compared to archive images.
