France de Meurs (Léa Seydoux) – with a name that expresses a nation – is the face and body of a 24/7 news network. Something is not right with her success and with the media system in general: an accident will surface it. Bruno Dumont writes and directs a film, in competition at Cannes and in Milan for its Italian première, dedicated to another non-aligned character, even if in the spotlight. A reflection on the paradoxical world of the media in which we are immersed and live.
