Monsieur Chocolat

Dir: Roschdy Zem / France / 2016 / 1hr 50mins / French with English subtitles

Cast: Omar Sy, James Thierrée, Clotilde Hesme

From the circus to the music hall, from anonymity to glory, this is the incredible true story of ‘Monsieur Chocolat’, the first black artist of the French stage (Omar Sy, The Intouchables). The duo he formed with Footit (played by Charlie Chaplin’s grandson James Thierrée) met with huge success in Belle Epoque Paris, before fame, easy money, gambling, and discrimination wore out their friendship and Monsieur Chocolat’s career. More than a biopic, this heartfelt and often hilarious film retraces the true story of a remarkable artistic friendship.
