Posters for the film (which depict the diminutive Sarkozy perched on a stool, legs dangling) went up last week and everyone I've seen has been on one of these boards attached to a flagpole. (There's even one just across the street from the Elysee.) I haven't seen one in the subway, on a bus shelter, or on a Morris column. Coincidence?
I'd really like to see the film but I know already from having seen the trailer that it's going to be a tough row given my French skills. Maybe one of you fluent speakers out there would like to go with me and help me through the parts I don't get?
Update (Tuesday at 10:00 am): Oh la la la la! The news is moving fast. In an interview with a German magazine, Sarkozy's father finally confirmed the rumors that have been circulating for weeks -- Mme. Sarkozy is indeed pregnant. Now how will that play at the polls?
