Synopsis
A dramatised film based on the writing of Francois Mitterand’s memoirs, providing a glimpse of his life, times and legacy. The old man is dying from prostate cancer and knows he doesn’t have much time to impart his knowledge and final statements on his life. Using this framework the film reveals the story of the man, a leading French politician, the longest serving French ruler since Napoleon III, who defected from the right to the left, and the man who made socialism electable twice.
