CANNES 2011 - To Carla and Nicolas, the reality goes beyond fiction sometimes

Confuse reality and fiction with regard to their political leaders, the British are accustomed since the days of Shakespeare. But the experience is new for the French, all excited at the prospect of discovering the first biopic ever made on a contemporary politician. The Conquest [Xavier Durringer movie with Denis Podalydès in the role of the French president, to be presented out of competition May 18] tells the story of Nicolas Sarkozy in wedges, which plot to become president, his obsession size, and uses flowery language to describe his opponents.

His wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is concerned, it is said that this film does him a laughing stock internationally. There is certainly a paradox in the fact that the First Lady of France plays a fictional character in the latest Woody Allen film, Midnight in Paris, which opens the Cannes Film Festival this year, just when one of the largest Hexagon actors played the role of president in a thinly veiled fiction.

It certainly was not the wish of the President, whose lackluster popularity shows slight signs of improvement on the eve of a long campaign to "représidentialiser" by the election of 2012. However, according to rumor, the First Lady had decided not to climb the stairs, not to prevent from appearing with her husband in a rather embarrassing, but because, at age 43, she is pregnant - a situation that could yield election.

Suffice to say that reality can still than fiction.
