This Is Our Land

Lucas Belvaux
France/Belgium, 2016, 114 minutes

A timely and sharp study, This Is Our Land shows the voices and sentiments hidden by the flag of populism and that thinking in terms of enemies is becoming increasingly commonplace in France. In Northern France, Pauline, a beloved and devoted nurse is offered the candidacy for mayorship by a far-right political party that is based on France’s Front National led by Marine Le Pen. The political campaign will test her will and personal life. For old fascists, the party’s respectable appearance is only a change in strategy; the aim is still a white fatherland. Other inhabitants of the old mining area around Calais have seen the world change too rapidly and feel neglected by the state. Despite the party’s respectable suits and smiles, violence is never far away, as Pauline discovers.Various sources
