Storyline

Between the two world wars, the glamorous Parisian music halls, the dodgy cabarets and smoky nightclubs of the pulsating cultural center on the Seine were home to the famous stars of the French variety and dance scene. Strong women who conquered the night of the city with their charisma and their voices. The performances and the repertoire of Gaby Deslys, Mistinguett, Joséphine Baker, Marianne Oswald and Suzy Solidor illustrate the lifestyle of the Roaring Twenties and Dirty Thirties in Paris like hardly anything else. This documentary is not only a journey back in the history of entertainment, but also a character portrait of female pioneers of feminism and sexual openness with countless old film clips and many unforgettable songs.
