[LA VIE DE CHÂTEAU]
Dapperly dressed Charles (Jacky Ido, IN THE MORNING, INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS), nicknamed the Prince, is the charismatic leader of a group of hustlers that cajole potential clients into the hair salons around Paris' Chateau d'Eau metro station. But Charles has dreams of his own — settling down and owning Mourat's failing barber shop. This film paints a kaleidoscopic portrait of daily life in a working-class area of Paris, captivatingly seen through the eyes of the employees and clientele of the African hair salons located there, with a more general homage to the French capital and the resourcefulness and vivacity of the people who live in it. Official Selection, 2017 London and Chicago film festivals. DIR/SCR Modi Barry, Cédric Ido; SCR Joseph Denize; PROD Toufik Ayadi, Christophe Barral. France, 2017, color, 81 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
