Three days before the Presidential election and her political retirement, the President of the French Republic learns of a scandal that will engulf her successor and ensure the victory of the far-right candidate. How to change the course of History? Dense and profound, THE WORLD OF YESTERDAY (adapted from Stefan Zweig's book) avoids all the clichés of political cinema to tackle the issues of human comedy in the manner of ancient tragedy. Led by a masterful Léa Drucker, this film takes a frontal and authentic look at the backstage of power and its silences. A huis-clos whose impeccable direction also reminds us of the fragility of democracy.
