Storyline

Based on a true story set around turn-of-the-century France, it follows the lives of two men: Joseph Pujol and Dr. Marcel Baudouin. Pujol was an entertainer at the Moulin Rouge who was gifted with a unique backside, which could take in and release air in measured increments thus producing amazing and humorous noises. Dr. Baudouin was obsessed with Joseph's "instrument" and pursued him doggedly for many years, ultimately resulting in his undoing. Written by Steve Ochs

comedy with heart, soul and precision
10 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This sweet, funny, true story of "Le Petomane" the man who played music out of his derrière was well worth seeing and hopefully owning as a DVD. "Parti" is the perfect flick to bust out at parties while you pass the bean dip & chili.

This film presents a unique form of comedy that is reminiscent of Chaplin in its silliness and heart & soul. You get to see the "human side" of an odd man with an odd ambition.

The story of Le Petomane takes you back to when you were a kid, and you had your first big burst of laughter over your first big blast of gas, then seamlessly fast forwards you to the adult life of uncertainty, and struggle. In the end, gas & love save the day. When life gets serious and significant and we find ourselves alone, that silly blast of gas is a reminder that if you can parlay it into a career--you can triumph over anything!
