Come enjoy this French movie with one the best casting of French cinema.

"French minister" de Bertrand Tavernier.
"Bertrand Tavernier’s bracing new film The French Minister (also known as Quai d’Orsay) is a screwball comedy set in the heart of French political life. Its central character is the incorrigible, indefatigable and utterly self-absorbed Foreign Minister (a bravura turn from Thierry L’Hermitte). He hires a hapless young man called Arthur (Raphael Personnaz), an anxious academic, to be his speechwriter, and we follow Arthur’s initiation into the jargon, eccentricities, rituals and realities of foreign affairs".
