Not by combat or espionage, but through a series of discussions which convinced their President, Charles de Gaulle, six months to let tax reforms be worked out. The script was written by Arash Amel and also stars Roger Ashton-Griffiths, Robert Lindsay, Paz Vega, Geraldine Somerville, Tim Roth, Frank Langella, Parker Posey and Milo Ventimiglia.
