FrenchFilmFest Alice and the Mayor

The Mayor of Lyon, Paul Theraneau (Fabrice Luchini) remains completely devoted to serving his city and his country but his knack for generating new ideas has evaporated. Enter low-key 30-year-old academic Alice Heimann (Anaïs Demoustier) who is hired for a nebulous job of conjuring up ideas at City Hall. Their interactions are our gateway into a lively, funny and touching exploration of the way we live now through the filter of two generations.
