The Minister

French political suspenser following a well-intentioned Transport Minister who falls prey to the machinations of higher-ups in the wake of a terrible bus accident. Critics Prize winner at Cannes Film Festival 2011.

"A cabinet minister in charge of national transportation believes himself to be a man of the people. He wants to be good, but in order to get anything done he must compromise, cajole, bend, and even betray. The Minister chronicles the transformation of an idealist into a pragmatist." (New Directors/New Films 2012 Festival)
