Not quite ‘Filmed in the P-O’ this time, but filmed in Occitanie, feature film ‘Le Poulain’ will be shot in and around Montpellier in September and October 2017.

Produced by comic book writer Mathieu Sapin, this comedy, whose release date has not yet been announced, will focus on politics, and behind the scenes of a presidential campaign. The characters are totally invented we are told, but look out for whiffs of your favourite or least favourite political personalities nevertheless. Shades of ‘Yes Minister’?

THE STORY

Arnaud Jaurès (Finnegan Oldfield), 25 ans, novice en politique, intègre par un concours de circonstances l’équipe de campagne d’un candidat à l’élection présidentielle. Il devient l’assistant de Agnès Karadzic (Alexandra Lamy), directrice de la communication, une femme de pouvoir et d’expérience qui l’attire et le fascine. Elle l’initie aux tactiques de campagne, et à ses côtés il observe les coups de théâtre et les rivalités au sein de l’équipe, abandonnant peu à peu sa naïveté pour gravir les échelons, jusqu’à un poste très stratégique.
