Francoise

French political thriller from first time director Nicolas Pariser. Melvil Poupaud is excellent as the sullen, disenchanted writer. When discreet mastermind Dussollier character disappears, the story loses steam and the rules of the game become more confused.

First 1/2 hr looked like it was going somewhere, then the movie got lost and never recovered. Well-acted for sure, but vacuous.
