French Cancan

France 1954 | 102 minutes | French | Hebrew, English subtitles

An exuberant and colorful homage to the Belle Epoque in a beautiful film about the beginnings of the Moulin Rouge. When Henri Danglard is about to lose his popular café, he comes up with the idea of taking the Cancan dance off the streets and into a club, with a humble washerwoman as the star.
