French Cancan

French Cancan

Jean Renoir's musical dramedy chronicles the revival of Paris' most notorious dance as it tells the story of a theater producer who turns a humble washerwoman into a Moulin Rouge star.

Starring Jean Gabin, one of the giants of French cinema, and the iconic Edith Piaf in a rare acting role.

"The glorious final sequence, in which the cancan is finally unveiled to the rowdy audience, is some kind of masterpiece, perhaps the equal of anything Renoir ever achieved: wild, free, turbulent, exhilarating." (Peter Bradshaw,
Guardian)
