In 1936 three friends in The Faubourg, a suburb north of Paris, learn that their local music hall will be closed down. They plan a musical that, if successful, will let them buy the venue and keep it alive.
Germain Pigoil, an aging music hall manager, is charged with murder. His confession is a long flashback to New Year's Eve, 1935, when he discovers his wife is unfaithful and Galapiat, the local mobster, closes the theatre. Nominated for five César Awards, 2009. Directed by Christophe Barratier and stars Gérard Jugnot, Clovis Cornillac and Kad Merad. (In French, English subtitles) (Drama) (2008) M (V)
