In this fictional cinematic version of the end of his political career, François Mitterrand meets an ambitious young journalist named Antoine Moreau who draws the president, his face marked by his impending death, into a conversation that soon evolves into a major discourse on life, death, politics and morality. «François Mitterrand embodied the possibility of socialism in France at the very time when socialism was collapsing around the world. Whether he meant to or not, he made the socialist dream credible for a decade.» (Robert Guédiguian)
