Shape-Shifting From Graphic Novel to Film: “Quai d’Orsay” > “Weapons of Mass Diplomacy” > “The French Minister”

Weapons of Mass Diplomacy (graphic novel) | The French Minister (movie trailer)

From PRI “The World”: “Antonin Baudry was young, smart and ambitious when he was hired in 2002 to write speeches for then-Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin. | These were heady days, just months after 9/11, and France was being pressured by the US government to support George W. Bush and his plans to attack Iraq. While it may not exactly sound like a romp, Antonin Baudry turns his government experience into a French farce-meets-The Office in a funny graphic novel called “Quai d’Orsay.” It will be released in English in the United States in April under the title “Weapons of Mass Diplomacy”.”
