Alice and the Mayor

Interview

Alice and the Mayor received one of the two great awards of the Directors’ Fortnight (The Europa Cinema Label Award). He directs a mayor of Lyon, Fabrice Luchini – sober than usual – who after 30 years of political life doubts and has no vision. A young philosopher, Anaïs Demoustier (seen in The French Minister or Bird People) is in charge of helping him rethink his magisterium. From this improbable encounter arises a dramatic comedy while finesse on the meaning of politics, and more broadly of life.
