The Scribe is listening in

What happens when you stumble upon a major scandal in the making?  This is what happened to The Scribe.  He only had to type out what was said and move on.

A French take on, what it looks like to me, the classic 1974 film The Conversation.  This time with a modern twist.  A typewriter!

A paranoid thriller in the spirit of ’70s pics such as “Marathon Man” and “The Conversation.” The movie stars Cluzet as a middle-aged, financially struggling man who is looking for work two years after suffering a burn-out. He gets hired by a mysterious employer to transcribe phone tapped conversations, which propels him into the heart of a large-scale political plot and gets him trapped in the French secret services underworld.

Inspired by the Lebanon hostage crisis in 1983-1984 where three French people were kidnapped and their release was allegedly withheld by the French government so that it would benefit presidential candidate Jacques Chirac, who was then prime minister.
