The mayor of Lyon, Paul Théraneau, has run out of ideas after thirty years in politics. To solve this problem, his team decides to hire a brilliant young philosopher, Alice Heimann. A dialogue between Alice and the mayor unfolds, bringing them together and shaking their certainties.

Our take

The mayor of Lyon has run out of ideas! Behind this intriguing premise lies a delightful reflection on current politics starring an exquisite Fabrice Luchini. Does political ideology still have a place within governance? The answer might be dialogue-heavy, but it’s charming and funny—à la Rohmer.
