*THE FILM*

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 French 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 highly publicized second marriage
was secretly unraveling…

The tongue-in-cheek LA CONQUÊTE follows Nicolas Sarkozy’s rise to power,
leading up to his victory in the 2007 elections. Denis Podalydès (de la
comedie Francaise) 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
