Written by the great Jacques Prévert, this timeless recreation of the world of 19th-century Parisian popular theatre assembles a colourful gallery of actors, mimes, writers, producers, hangers-on and fans to reflect on the knotty links between life and art. At once epic and intimate, wise and funny, moving and meticulously plotted, it remains one of the pinnacles of French cinema.
