Pascal Perrineau, "France in the Boudoir"

FRANCE IN THE BOUDOIR (2012, 24'10")

According to a recent international survey (opinion poll BVA-Gallup 2011), the French are one of the most pessimistic nations in the world. Is France lost or down in the dumps? Is this national bad mood temporary, only due to the crisis, or does it reveal a deeper reality? The political scientist Pascal Perrineau, director of CEVIPOF (Centre for Political Research at Sciences Po) talks with neither taboos nor political correctness about the French collective unconscious.
