Synopsis


Au Palais fédéral, derrière les portes de la salle 87, une commission parlementaire est chargée d'élaborer une loi sur le génie génétique (GEN-LEX). L'accès est interdit au public car les débats d'une commission doivent rester secrets. Mais rien n'interdit à une équipe de cinéma patiente et curieuse d'attendre, dehors, devant la porte.

Tënk's film review


Jean-Stéphane Bron raises the curtain on the farce of politics by filming a Swiss parliamentary debate on genetics. Confined to the corridors, he follows every twist and turn of the legislative process from the wings, acted out by five federal councillors. Filmed head-on, speaking in turns, each of them adopt a different political stance, while cheap shots, sidestepping and a show of other manoeuvres take centre stage.
