The Glorious Acceptance of Nicolas Chauvin

26 min

Historians have no doubt, the famous, brave French soldier, humble peasant Nicolas Chauvin never lived, but became a national myth.

Benjamin Crotty awakes the phantom on screen, switching between night club stage and outdoor Monty Python surrealities.

At the same time funny and sad, depending which way your brain leads you ... (Otto Reiter)
