Is There a Frenchman in the House?
15 members

Based on a novel by Frederic Dard who also co-scripted with director Jean-Pierre Mocky, this satire on French politics is centered around an official whose earlier rise to power had some sordid aspects that are about to be uncovered by the death of his uncle. While he is trying to contain any potential scandal, the man becomes enamored of the daughter of his uncle's maid. This new romance inspires him to forget worries about a public image and focus on a new life -- not any easy objective when unsavory friends and foes have their own agendas in mind.

Pas emballé… Y’avait le chantage du journaliste à traiter, le type qu’on garde prisonnier depuis des lustres, le politicien qui tombe amoureux avec la secrétaire jalouse, le politicien qui ouvre les yeux sur le monde, le flic qui se fait Jacqueline Mailland plus âgée que lui… Mais tous ces thèmes sont juste esquissés, survolés alors que chacun aurait pu être traité plus profondément. On arrive à une sorte de tas de petites histoires mises ensemble, comme un film à sketch, mais sans rien de convaincant, à peine les acteurs…
