This April and May at CinéSalon, get a crash course in French politics just in time for France’s presidential elections. From paranoid thrillers to high-stakes dramas and witty satires, these films will immerse you in the world of political power struggles. There, you will meet the desperate men, unlikely heroes, and wide-eyed novices who populate the French government. In moments of crisis, acts of resistance, and life-or-death situations, see who will put career before party, justice before ambition, or France above all.
In the spirit of the French ciné-clubs and literary salons, CinéSalon pairs an engaging French film with a social post-screening wine & beer reception. Every 7:30pm screening will be introduced by a high-profile personality in the arts.
Films in French with English subtitles unless otherwise noted.
THE FRENCH MINISTER:
In this hilarious but largely factual account of French politics, the idealistic young Arthur Vlaminck is hired to write speeches for a maddeningly eccentric Minister of Foreign Affairs. He soon discovers that it is easier to resolve an international crisis than to understand those who govern us.
Based on the bestselling autobiographical graphic novel by Antonin Baudry, former Cultural Counselor to the French embassy in New York, The French Minister is a deliciously absurdist, fictionalized retelling of the events leading up to French Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin’s historic United Nations speech against the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
