This Is Our Land (Chez nous) directed by Lucas Belvaux (France/Belgium, 2017, 117 min.).
This timely drama follows a young nurse and mother named Pauline (Émilie Dequenne, Our Children), who is recruited by a right-wing politician resembling Marine Le Pen (Catherine Jacob) to be the approachable face of the National Front. Although Pauline is not particularly concerned with politics, she is seduced by the promise of an increased salary to support her family and the opportunity to make her country a safer place. As she becomes more embroiled in political theater, Pauline begins to realize that the message she’s endorsing conflicts with her own beliefs. Also starring André Dussollier (Amélie, Tell No One), This Is Our Land offers a compelling look at the tensions leading up to the recent French election.
