*THINK THE U.S. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION PROCESS IS A FARCE? COME DISCOVER
FRANCES VERSION...
*

In this 2012 Presidential Election year, both in France and in the U.S.,
the controversial LA CONQUÊTE –the first French film about a President
still in office- offers a cynical and humorous view of the international
governing class and its behind-the-scenes Machiavellian chess games.

When Sarkozy was elected President of France in May 2007, it was a dream
come true for this ambitious man who had made many enemies –including in
his own party– on his way to the top. But the dream had its dark side: as
Sarkozy reached  the political top, his second marriage was secretly
unraveling…

The hilarious LA CONQUÊTE follows Nicolas Sarkozy’s rise to power, leading
up to his victory in the 2007 elections. The talented Denis Podalydès
delivers a witty, yet commanding portrayal of Sarkozy, supported by an
all-star cast portraying major French political figures, including former
French President Jacques Chirac. Director Xavier Durringer never veers too
far from reality, even while deploying fictional embellishments and a
larger-than-life sense of humor. *Watch trailer
