Description

The government is in panic and considers accepting defeat, but recently promoted two-star General Charles de Gaulle (The Translators, AF FFF20 Lambert Wilson), wants to change the course of history... The biographical drama is one of French cinema’s most established and beloved genres, and Gabriel Le Bomin’s spectacularly mounted De Gaulle stirringly depicts a crucial period in the life of one of the most famous figures in the nation’s modern history, doing it enormous justice in the process. His wife, Yvonne (Isabelle Carré, Delicious, Moving On, AF FFF21), is his first support, but very quickly events spiral out of control and separate them - she and their children set out on the roads of exodus, as Charles travels to London to meet with Winston Churchill. He wants to make another voice heard: that of resistance. Matching the impact and scale of recent war dramas The Darkest Hour and The King’s Choice as it depicts crucial incidents in gripping tick-tock fashion, Le Bomin expertly mixes the historic and the Romanesque, charting both a military debacle and the eventual revelation of a destiny.
