This film goes behind the scenes at the Diamant Bleu, a music hall and cabaret on par with Parisian venues like the Moulin Rouge... but located in a small village in the French countryside.
This cabaret is run by a family, the Meyers, who work more like a tribe. Patrick Meyer, director and performer, works with his parents, his brother, his sister and their spouses, to keep the cabaret running.
As they start production on a new revue, a process that involves casting calls, rehearsals, and music, choreography and costume creation, the Diamant Bleu pushes the curtain aside to give us a behind-the-scenes look at a music hall in action.
What do the neighboring farmers think about this cabaret that helps the village stay alive, but with semi-nude dancers and female impersonators on stage? How does this family run its business with such professional and artistic integrity in this rural environment?
With the participation of Annie Cordy, Jean-Jacques Debout and Thierry Outrilla, stage director at the Moulin Rouge,this film plunges into the world of feathers, rhinestones and sequins, to share the everyday realities of one family’s incredible story.
