This is Our Land is a film for our times. Not so loosely based on Marine Le Pen, Agnès Dorgelle is making a push for power. Pauline, a care assistant who is public-spirited and frustrated by the way her town is going, is encouraged to stand for election as the local town mayor. She is a ‘good’ person, while those around her clearly use her for their far right ambitions. Fundamentally asking the key questions about immigration and populism, the film combines excellent filmmaking from Lucas Belvaux, clever mise-en-scène, great writing with matching performances.
