Synopsis

In 14 years of French presidency, François Mitterrand commissioned 11 major works like the Grande Arche de la Défense, the Opéra Bastille or the Louvre Pyramid.

Initially, nothing was planned in his campaign promises. His policy of large public works has been innovative and unexpected.

Did the former President take himself for Louis XIV? Was there a mystical dimension in the realization of these pharaonic monuments? Was this believer in spiritual forces anxious to leave a trace?
