Movie Info

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.

  • A movie so enamored by its self-perception of cleverness that even policy wonks will find it hard to muster enthusiasm.

  • Pariser doesn't seem quite sure how to sketch the wider world around his two protagonists, with friends and colleagues floating in and out of the picture in a way that might be lifelike but that also keeps creating expectations...

  • With minimal cynicism, but with a healthy dose of irony, Pariser questions the true purpose of power. [Full Review in Spanish]

    Jan 17, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • [Gives] a vision of municipal policy that would please both Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson. [Full review in Spanish]

    Jan 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A touching look into the dysfunctional workings of the corridors of power at the Lyon town hall...a lively, touching exploration of the way we live now, seen through two generations. Classy but accessible.

    Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…
  • An undoubtedly pertinent and necessary reflection in the current delicate political panorama, but it gets lost in jokes that are much more superficial than the discourse that it tries to put forth. [Full review in Spanish]
