Movie Info

The mayor (Pascal Greggory) of this unpolished provincial town has plans for a beautiful field on the edge of town, and he's quite sure they will be put through the central government in time to help him with his political career. He intends to replace the field with a sports and "cultural" center, along with a large parking lot. The only overt opposition to this plan at the outset comes from an environmentally sensitive grammar school teacher (Fabrice Luchini), and he's hardly a threat, because he doesn't imagine he can successfully oppose the builders' designs. Meanwhile, the mayor has fallen in love with one of the local representatives of the intelligentsia, a woman novelist (Arielle Dombasle). Trouble begins to percolate into the mayor's life and thwart his plans when his daughter and the daughter of the schoolteacher become friends.

Critic Reviews for The Tree, The Mayor, and the Mediatheque (L'arbre, le maire et la médiathèque)

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • The film's ambling tempo and spatial integrity are political as well as aesthetic, and the film's first closeup-near the end-is both a visual jolt and a moral one.
