Quai d’Orsay

Quai d’Orsay

This minister, Alexandre Taillard de Vorms, is a youthful, good-looking, and ambitious man whose energy is often directed in the most inane and futile directions. His long-suffering staff has to clean up the messes left in his wake; meanwhile, a new young speechwriter is given a crash course in how to make sense of the meaningless gibberish that comes from his boss's mouth. Trips to Africa, crises in Ludmenistan, speeches at the UN, and meetings in Berlin rub up against anchovy disputes with the Spanish, while quotes from Heraclitus add a timeless element to the modern political folly. QUAI D'ORSAY is gleeful enjoyment and wicked in intent and effect. (Toronto International Film Festival)

Bertrand Tavernier, born in 1941, is one of the great masters of French cinema. Tavernier won the BAFTA, a total of four César Awards, and a Golden Bear.

Tavernier will receive the Golden Lion for career achievement at the Venice International Film Festival 2015. // Films (selection): L'HORLOGER DE SAINT-PAUL (The Clockmaker of St. Paul, 1974), COUP DE TORCHON (1981), L'APPÂT (The Bait, 1995), LA PRINCESSE DE MONTPENSIER (The Princess of Montpensier, 2010), QUAI D'ORSAY (2013)
