Iceland, April 1973. French President Georges Pompidou meets US President Richard Nixon to discuss monetary policy. But something is wrong. The French President does not seem well at all. Television images reveal a tired man with a swollen face. The rumours begin to fly. Officially, all is well. But, behind the scenes, it is clear that President Pompidou does not have the flu. He is seriously ill. And so the backroom manoeuvring begins, pitting Gaullists against Socialists in a battle for future control of the French Republic. 2011: centenary of Pompidou's birth
