A priest, a rabbi and an imam walk into a French comedy. What happens?
Pretty much what you would expect in the simpatico if extremely broad-minded Coexist (CoeXister), which follows the travails of an unlikely pop music sensation whose members represent a harmonious grouping of France’s three principal religions.
Written and directed by comic Fabrice Eboue, whose previous features tackled Gallic slavery (Case depart) and African dictators (The Crocodile of Botswanga), this high-concept farce was inspired by an actual trio of singing clergymen (known as Les Pretres — The Priests) that rocked France in 2010 with their album Spiritus Dei.
