In the aftermath of the French Presidential Election, it seems fitting that this razor-sharp comedy should return to the big screen. Young graduate Arthur Vlamrick (Raphaël Personnaz) is hired as a speechwriter for the tough-talking Minister of Foreign Affairs (Thierry Lhermitte) and rather than idealism what he finds a world filled with ambition and dirty dealings.
