The European

Synopsis

‘The European’ is a behind-the-scenes portrait of Frans Timmermans. Filmmaker Dirk-Jan Roeleven follows him for nearly two years, from his appointment as Vice-President of the European Commission in 2014 to the Brexit referendum. As he is filmed in taxis, planes and cheerless hotel rooms, he talks openly about his assertiveness and the qualities of a good diplomat.
