The Minister (L’exercice de l’État) by Pierre Schöeller (2012, 115 min.). This extraordinary film follows Minister for Transport Bertrand Saint-Jean (Olivier Gourmet), as he navigates the hostile world of French politics filled with cunning backroom deals, broken allegiances, and PR stunts. The film paints an intense psychological profile of a man who craves power and will do anything—even siding with the enemy—to assert his control. With a bold style and brilliant performances by Gourmet and Michel Blanc as Gilles, his personal secretary, The Minister is an edge-of-your seat political thriller, winning 3 of its 11 César nominations (Best Supporting Actor, Best Original Screenplay, Best Sound).
