Still image from the film Le Million
An exuberant journey across Paris, Le Million is a musical full of cinematic magic. The film, one of René Clair's first forays into sound technology, mixes joyous songs with madcap comedy and lively choreography. It tells the tale of poor artist Michel Bouflette (René Lefèvre) as he rushes to recover his lost lottery ticket. Along the way, he encounters hilarious characters, elaborate obstacles, and a rival who wants to claim the one million florins. Representing a significant but often overlooked turning point in French film history, Le Million is a jewel whose pleasures deserve rediscovery. (16mm presentation)
