Conquest, The (in French)

Rating = B

The is the story of Sarkozy's campaign to reach the top of French politics, ultimately becoming the president of France. Chirac and the other French politicians denigrate and underestimate Sarkozy because he is not of the pure French elite. Meanwhile, Sarkozy's wife CÚcilia dislikes their life together as he rises higher and higher, and he has a hard time keeping her at his side, a necessity for election as president. The music is wonderful.
