Alice et le Maire
The Mayor of Lyon (Fabrice Luchini) remains completely devoted to serving his city but his knack for generating new ideas has evaporated. As a fix, his aides bring a brilliant young philosopher, Alice (Anais Demoustier), into his inner circle.
Their interactions are our gateway into a lively, funny and touching exploration of the way we live now through the filter of two generations. Talky in the best possible way, this is a classy but accessible piece of entertainment which is also food for thought, with a sparkling performance from the ever-dependable Fabrice Luchini. Europa Cinemas Award in the Cannes Director’s Fortnight. “Nicolas Pariser delivers a very clever and quirky political comedy, with brilliant performances from Fabrice Luchini and Anaïs Demoustier.” – Cineuropa.
