The mayor of Lyon is in existential crisis. After 30 years in politics, he feels totally empty and devoid of ideas. As a fix for this problem, his aides bring a brilliant young philosopher, into his inner circle.
The mayor of Lyon, Paul Théraneau, is in a delicate position. After 30 years in politics, he is running out of ideas, feeling like an existential emptiness. To overcome this, Paul hires a young and brilliant philosopher, Alice Heimann. Then follows a dialogue between two diametrically opposed personalities who will turn their certainties upside down.Written by
When Alice is on the tram, we can see she's crossing the Rhône to get to the left bank, thus either the T1 going north-east or T2 line going east, then a shot of her in front of the Sainte-Blandine church is seen, which is a few stops before on the T1 line. See more »
I've enjoyed Fabrice Lucchini in a lot of movies, which is why I went to see this one. He does his usual fine job of creating a character. But the story didn't much interest me, and most of the rest of the characters were very formulaic. The speech the the mayor and his female assistant near the end of the movie was enthralling - a "why can't we have that sort of candidate" moment - but I don't know that it justified sitting through the rest of the movie.
