In a perfect farewell to the 35TH Alliance Française French Film Festival, join us for Second Round - an audacious and at times hilarious savaging of modern politics and media from the multi talented actor, writer, and director Albert Dupontel (Bye Bye Morons, AF FFF22).
After the humiliation of being demoted from covering politics to reporting on soccer, disgraced journalist Nathalie Pove (Cécile de France, Lost Illusions, AF FFF22) is unexpectedly hauled back into current affairs to cover the upcoming presidential election. Weary, cynical, and feeling like she has seen it all before, even Nathalie cannot believe what she uncovers about the frontrunner, a populist with little political experience, but with deep family connections and even deeper hidden secrets.
Dupontel is something of a troublemaker in French cinema, with his blend of caustic humour, irony, and cynicism. In Second Round, his provocative approach to satire is as heightened as ever, delivering an intensely clever, original, and cutting comedy reminiscent of The Thick of It and Veep. The perfect ode to French cinema to finish our 2024 edition.
