A lazy politician is forced to resign and has to adapt to a more humble life, finding old friends and pleasures.  A joyous satire, poetic and surreal by turns, from one of the world’s most individual film-makers.

“Subtle, slily subversive and boasting countless delightful sight-gags, this is absurdist/surrealist movie-making at its most poetic, stoic and sceptical of political change.”  (Geoff Andrew – Time Out)
