France is played by a Léa Seydoux playing the role of the narcissistic journalist spectacularly well, living only for her success to the detriment of people, with a certain contempt for them.
It's a real treat to see her play, going from a very chic world with sequined dresses to battlefield sequences, it's her best role in my opinion.
The plunge into the faking of the reports is very well orchestrated and absolutely embarrassing for on the one hand the people interviewed and on the other hand us, who attend the scenes knowing the psychology of France. It's funny, shocking, and right at the same time. Of course, special mention for the music of Christophe, coming to sublimate the film.
Without going into too much detail, the staging, the well-directed actors and the music transport us to this film, alongside France, who will experience the backdrop of the life of a star.
Between her complicated family life, the accident with the delivery man, the relentlessness of social networks destroying as quickly as they send to the top and the perversity of the media, France has no respite, the current system still catching up with her.
In conclusion, this film is a treat. A painting of current society making us cross all emotions. Not having really adhered to his last two feature films on Joan of Arc, France reconciles me with Dumont.
I can understand that the film is not unanimous. Nonetheless, I highly recommend it. He was in the official selection at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival and, in my opinion, deserved awards.
