Jean Renoir: French Cancan

1956 Rated NR 1hr 45m

Nineteenth century Paris comes vibrantly alive in director Jean Renoir's exhilarating tale of the opening of the world-renowned Moulin Rouge. Jean Gabin plays the wily impresario Danglard, who makes the can-can all the rage while juggling the love of two beautiful women -- an Egyptian belly-dancer and a naïve working girl turned can-can star. This celebration of life, art and the City of Light includes a rare cameo by Edith Piaf.
