The French Minister (Quai d’Orsay) is a 2013 French comedy film directed by Bertrand Tavernier. Based on “Quai d’Orsay”, a comic strip by Christophe Blain and Abel Lanzac, the film takes an initially comedic look at the French Foreign Ministry under Dominique de Villepin but moves into more serious territory as France, in co-operation with Germany, opposes the 2003 Invasion of Iraq. The film received three nominations at the 39th César Awards, with Niels Arestrup winning the award for Best Supporting Actor.
