A well-made film, good acting. It is essentially essayistic: it argues less for dramatic cinema than it does to inform, like a documentary but not a documentary. The film that I would suggest as followup -- and works better as dramatic film -- is *Carlos* directed by Assayas (the mini-series is complete and longer than the feature film version). *Carlos* is the historical setup for *Made in France*; the former lays the groundwork, twenty-five years earlier, for the context of *Made in France*.
