The French Minister

The new film by veteran French filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier (whose 1980 A Week’s Vacation was the first movie ever presented by the Cinematheque) is a biting and buoyant political comedy about a handsome, arrogant, and (thankfully) fictional French Minister of Foreign Affairs (Thierry Lhermitte) who is continually setting fires around the world that his beleaguered staff –and new speechwriter—must put out. “A sparkling and savvy comedy...Spry, pleasingly funny.” –Variety.
