We’re excited to bring you ‘Chocolat’ – the much anticipated French box office hit starring Omar Sy (César Award winner, Best Actor, ‘Intouchables’) and James Thiérrée (celebrated theatre director and actor, and grandson of Charlie Chaplin)! Don’t miss it with English subtitles on March 12th ONLY, followed by a quiz to learn French through movies with Clap français.
« From circus to theater, from anonymity to fame, the incredible destiny of Chocolat the clown (Omar Sy), the first black stage performer in France. The unprecedented duo he forms with Footit (James Thierrée) is very popular in Belle Époque Paris, until easy money, gambling and discrimination take their toll on their friendship and Chocolat’s career. The singular story of an exceptional artist. » – Synopsis
« Blending sharp physical comedy with lots of compassion, Sy does a fantastic job channeling the spirit of a man caught between his desire to be rich and free and the gradual recognition that he’s still only someone else’s whipping boy… Known more for his theater performances than for his film work, Thiérrée is equally convincing as a serious, career-minded clown who happens to be more colorblind than those around him, yet refuses to change up a racist routine that all of Paris cherishes. Footit’s circus scenes are truly remarkable, with the acrobatic Thiérrée evoking a very Chaplin-esque character (they even look alike, save for the mustache) that actually makes the big top seem exciting again. » – The Hollywood Reporter
