Walid Berrisol and Florentine Kolp have qualified to nominate Boris Johnson: “Magician.” For an hour, the director and co-writer of this documentary, which aired in the box “Le Monde en Face” on France 5, portrays a portrait of a British Prime Minister, who is more suggestive than a political leader. . The man pays good words, wins the election, but when the dual reality of Brexit and Kovid-19 is born, he struggles to follow it. “We were trying to answer this question: what happens when a person is chosen over lies? “, Find Walid Berisoul.
For Boris Johnson, the answer is hardly spectacular.
