Chocolat (12)

chocolatFrom the circus to the music hall, from anonymity to glory, this is the incredible story of Monsieur Chocolat, the first black artist of the French stage. The duo he formed with the white clown Footit met with popular success in Belle Époque Paris, before fame, easy money, gambling, and discrimination wore out their friendship and Monsieur Chocolat’s career.frenchfilmfirstLogo
