Subversion

1979 NR

Blind and paralyzed, a president (Sacha Pitoëff) governs his country by using his extraordinary hearing and relying on his brilliant but corrupt daughter in this absurdist political allegory from writer-director Stanislav Stanojevic. Determined to achieve equal status with men, the daughter seizes power by declaring herself fire chief, then setting buildings ablaze to ensure her job security. Marie Déa and Nathalie Nell co-star.
