French documentary about Mubarak?

From the Arab gossip site Waleg:

The well known journalist Christian Mallare from France has made a documentary film about the Egyptian president Husni Mubarak and considers it the most important documentary in comparison to the other 2 films produced for foreign presidents and predicts that it will be a surprise.

Christian traveled to Egypt the last month to start the production of the film. The documentary included the biography of Mubarak, his family and practical life and interviews with his friends.

Christian says that he has made this film because he really appreciates Mubarak whom he made with a lot of important interviews and met him in several occasions in the last 23 years.
Doesn't sound like it will be very critical... probably yet another French sycophant of Arab dictators. Googled him and can't find anything about it, though.
