Review

Spin continues to prove itself one of the most superbly tense, thrilling dramas on television. The dust shows no sign of settling after last week’s assassination of far-right presidential candidate Morlaix.

France’s political climate is in chaos – and President Marjorie (Nicolas Marié) is struggling to steer the country with any semblance of confidence after the resignation of Prime Minister Maxime Beaugendre.

The well-intentioned but imprudent attempt of Marjorie’s wife Elisabeth (Carole Bouquet) to smuggle a young French woman from an Arab state spectacularly, humiliatingly backfires. And has her husband considering divorce – a further PR nightmare.

Summary

Betrayed by his friend, prime minister Maxime Beaugendre, Alain Marjorie is forced to form a new government. Journalist Apolline Vremler - Simon Kapita's ex-wife - leaves Paris for Lebanon, where she is investigating a corruption case to which Clemence Parodi, the writer of a draft law decisive for the government, is closely linked. However, another more intimate scandal threatens the presidency. Nicolas Marie stars. In French.
