Our take

The deadpan, off-the-wall cinema of French filmmaker Benoît Forgeard came to a peak with his satirical feature Gaz de France. Starring the charmingly bonkers singer Philippe Katerine as the president of France, this film is a wild satire of the republic of liberté, égalité and… absurdité?
