The Conquest (La conquête)

THE CONQUEST chronicles the volatile right-leaning Sarkozy's startling rise to become President of France and the emotional and psychological stakes involving the conquest of power. On the day the diminutive Sarkozy conquered his ultimate ambition, his wife who for twenty years had struggled to pull the man she loved from the shadow into the light walked out on him for another man.

Dec. 16, 2011 - Boston.com - Ty Burr, Globe Staff

An enjoyably gossipy account of French president Nicolas Sarkozy’s rise to power, “The Conquest’’ is most notable for coming out while its subject is still in office, much as Oliver Stone’s “W.’’ did in 2008. Unlike Stone, director and co-writer Xavier Durringer isn’t interested in epic pop psychology or partisan grandstanding. “Conquest’’ is a seriocomic portrait of naked ambition and a depiction of petty office politics on a national scale. It’s a deadpan hoot that lacks the bite it could and arguably should have had.
