The French Minister

Directed by Bertrand Tavernier | Written by Bertrand Tavernier, Christophe Blain and Abel Lanzac

Arthur, a graduate of all the right schools, is the new speechwriter for the Minister of Foreign Affairs. While he tries to navigate internal politics, the various strong personalities around him (such as a ruthless policy advisor), and the stress of finding the Minister’s “voice,” Arthur must also write a speech for the Minister that will hopefully put them both in the history books. Based on co-screenwriter Antonin Baudry’s own graphic novels about his experience working in the Foreign Ministry under former Foreign (and Prime) Minister Dominique de Villepin, The French Minister takes us for a breathless ride through the halls of French government.
