Event Description

Part of CinéSalon series Liberté, Égalité, Fantasy: French Politics on Film

When the President orders him to privatize the French rail system, Minister of Transportation Bernard Saint Jean must decide whether to follow his ideals or chase his ambitions. While this riveting account of the moral vacuum in the halls of power has the pace of a thriller, it plays like the work of an unflappable journalist coupled with a wise historian: from cabinet meetings to media manipulation, from cronyism to backstabbing, The Minister is an utterly convincing depiction of political life in a land in crisis. Insightful, chilling, and sometimes hilarious, this is essential viewing for our politically charged times. 

"The Minister stands as that rare project that sees past the cliches of politics, paying the world respect through its elegant widescreen lensing and score."—Variety
