L'Exercice de l'État (The Minister)Synopsis:

From the opening scene of The Minister, we find ourselves immersed in the seductive and destructive force of political power. The ambitious and idealistic Bertrand Saint-Jean, a low-ranking cabinet member, finds himself unable to break free from the behind-the-scenes machinations of a political system that perpetuates itself through the sacrifice of its own members.

Pierre Schoeller, DVD, 115 min, France, 2011 (French)
