Monsieur Chocolat

From circus to theater, from anonymity to fame, the incredible destiny of Chocolat the clown, the first black stage performer in France.

The unprecedented duo he forms with George Footit dit Footit is very popular in Belle Epoque Paris, until easy money, gambling and discrimination take their toll on their friendship and Chocolat's career.

The singular story of an exceptional artist, beautifully realised through the energised performances of the ever-charismatic Omar Sy (The Intouchables) and real-life circus performer (and Charlie Chaplin's grandson!) James Thierrée.
