In WW2 France, Rene Artois runs a small café where Resistance fighters, Gestapo men, German Army officers and escaped Allied POWs interact daily, ignorant of one another's true identity or presence, exasperating Rene.
This is not just a fine piece of brazilian pop music of the times registered in film. It's cabaret meets brazilian carnival. It's also very into modernism, which translates as great sets, and dialogues and action that verge on the complete absurd, inbetween songs, as you follow two songwriters that drink and gamble a little too much for their own good. Great comedy!
