THIS IS OUR LAND
Paulien has a pronounced social streak: She takes care of her patients as a nurse, her two kids and her old dad. Since she's so popular, the right-wing party Le Bloc asks her to run for town hall. Pauline is really a leftist, but feels tickled by the offer – and lets the charismatic Bloc leader Agnès Dorgnelle lull her in. The film by Belgian director Lucas Belvaux evokes the Front National in France and its leader Marine Le Pen.
