Trivia

Even though it is a small movie, it requited a huge effort on the production team because it was really shot on May the 6th 2012, the day François Hollande won the election. All the people on the street are real, no extras, and the last part of the movie was done based on the real results of the election, unknown when they started filming. See more »

A very disappointing movie
15 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

To make a movie under the look of a sociologist who redraws the day of the victory in the presidential elections of François Hollande in France, it seems to us very interesting. The problem consists in the art which could reconcile an event of the private life of a character with this big event of the life of an important country. This attempt seems to us difficult because it is about two almost set themes and, unfortunately the movie The Battle of Solférino is law to have associated these themes. Indeed, the film-maker Justine Triet does not succeed in creating an exciting movie which would know how to interest the spectator. We have difficulty in finding the link which exists between a fact of the private life of a journalist and a victory of François Hollande. By examining both poles of her theme we notice that the event Of the life of our country. This attempt seems to us difficult because it is about two almost set themes and, unfortunately the movie The film " La Battaille de Solférino" is far for being able to associate these themes. Indeed, the film-maker Justine Triet does not succeed in creating an exciting movie which would know how to interest the spectator. We have difficulty in finding the link which exists between a fact of the private life of a journalist and a victory of François Hollande. By examining both poles of her theme, we notice that the event of the political life of France is presented in a insignificant way, with some extracts which make no sense and no report with the private life of the protagonist. Also we can consider that the recordings of the television which have to be in archives are more interesting than the extracts of the film-maker. As regards the private life of the journalist: what is the interest of this story/ If there is a drama of a father who sees itself private to see his children it is very badly developed and the scenes of hysteria without a particular aesthetic value we made regret having gone to the cinema. A large number of critics tends to criticize severely the American movies, but it is not a movie as the one who can give an advantage to the European cinema
