Film turns spotlight on Sarkozy
"La Conquete", or "The Conquest", is a less than flattering story on the French president.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the IMF chief, was widely expected to run in France's presidential election next year.

But the sexual assault charges that he now faces have effectively shattered those ambitions and boosted president Nicolas Sarkozy's chances of re-election.  

However, Sarkozy's poll ratings remain low, and a new film about both his personal and political life is unlikely to help.

Jonah Hull reports on "La Conquete", or "The Conquest", a less than flattering story of Sarkozy's lust and quest for power.
