Jean-Xavier de Lestrade’s taut political thriller plunges us into the worlds — and very murky waters — of lobbyists, politicians, multinational corporations and farmers in this gripping indictment of the pesticide industry. Alix Poisson leads a superb ensemble cast, in which every character, at some point, is forced to confront the courage of his or her convictions. A dense, fascinating, assiduously researched, meticulously structured, and extremely complex story with multiple points of view, The Inside Game is Arte’s smash hit of 2019.

Acclaimed, highly prolific filmmaker Jean-Xavier de Lestrade is probably best known for his documentary work, winning the 2001 Oscar for Best Documentary Film for his ninth feature, Murder on a Sunday Morning. After studying law and journalism in Paris, he cofounded a press agency at 24 and, three years later, became an independent filmmaker, training his camera on society and its taboos – sexual violence, insanity, death, exclusion, and the inner workings of the judicial system. In addition to his many documentary films, he has co-written and directed several TV movies and series, both narrative and documentary, including The Staircase; Sin City Law;The Staircase II, 3xManon; Malaterra; and Manon, 20 Years (COLCOA 2017).
