TV5 presented Tonie Marshall's Number One in partnership with CINÉFRANCO
If you like your drama and comedy served stone cold and unashamedly smart, you will like Number One very much indeed. (Graeme Tuckett, Stuff.coz.nz)
Emmanuelle Blachey is a brilliant and determined engineer who has risen up through the ranks of her company, a major French energy firm, until sitting on the board of directors. One day, a network of powerful women offer to help her become the head of a CAC 40 firm. She would be the first woman to hold such a position. But in the spheres still largely dominated by men, professional and personal obstacles increase. The conquest seemed thrilling but turns out to be a war.
A debate in French organized by Cinéfranco on the film Numéro Une took place on August 12 at 7:00 p.m. Visit the TV5 website to watch Number One by Tonie Marshall
