1920. Against all odds, Paul Deschanel, an idealist unknown to the general public, is elected President of the French Republic. His first steps in power are impressive. He makes a series of audacious proposals : abolition of the death penalty, the right to vote for women, universal suffrage! But the cynicism of the political world, the game of institutions and the violence of media campaigns catch up with him and soon derail him. One evening, he falls off a train and vanishes… The whole world wonders: what happened to the French President?

Jacques Gamblin and André Dussollier shine in Jean-Marc Peyrefitte’s feature debut, which brings attention to an often ignored part of political history with intelligence and comic vivacity. – Cineuropa
