Remembering Jean Yanne

Tribute to Jean Yanne, troublemaker and jack-of-all-trades - cabaret, radio, song, film - with a propensity for sketches and parodies. He was directed by the likes of Chabrol, Lautner or Pialat (thanks to whom he won a Prize at Cannes), and directed offbeat, comical films, mocking both politics and entertainment.



Chinese in Paris by Jean Yanne (Les Chinois à Paris, 1974, 1h54)

The Chinese invade France. While the President of the Republic (Bernard Blier) flees to New York, Régis Forneret (Jean Yanne) is organizing the black market... A satirical comedy that scratches the surface of France of the Occupation.
