Story


The setting is Spring 1936 ; a working-class district in the north of Paris. This neighborhood probably had a name once but now everyone simply calls it The Faubourg. In early May, three residents of the Faubourg - Pigoil, Milou, and Jacky - still sulk over the closing of the Chansonia four months ago. Supported by the locals who live to the rhythm of Monsieur TSF's radio, the three friends decide to take hold of their destiny by producing the "hit" musical the Chansonia has always needed. With the help of the town, and the arrival of a mysterious and beautiful young actress named Duce, Pigoil, Milou, and Jacky bring the magic of the stage back to the Chansonia.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..thoroughly charming and entertaining throughout..”
by David Parkinson [Empire Magazine]
“..a handsomely mounted but achingly undistinguished film..”
by Keith Phipps [Onion AV Club]
“..a superficial, cliched jumble that illustrates what might happen if you threw Moulin Rouge and Amelie into the same high-speed blender..”
by Nick Schager [Slant Magazine]
