The Conquest is not a film about Nicolas Sarkozy - it's a film about political conquest. It's a Shakespearean expression, where we have all the elements of a drama, both political and personal at the same time.

There's no imitation, no caricature, no parodie - it's realism with a distance where the dialogues are often quite funny.
