Roschdy Zem's film follows former slave Rafael Padilla (Omar Sy) as he unexpectedly becomes one of the most famous circus stars of the Belle Époque era in France. After performing as a clown in small country shows, Padilla is discovered by respected British entertainer George Foottit (James Thierree) and moves to Paris. Despite tensions between them, the pair quickly form a successful partnership and become one of the main attractions of the city's Nouveau Cirque. However, as the pressures of fame begin to take their toll, Padilla struggles with regular racial discrimination and a growing gambling addiction which threaten to ruin his career. "The clown known as Chocolat, a former Afro-Cuban slave, was a fixture of Belle Époque Paris. Toulouse Lautrec painted him — often in ugly caricature as a monkey — the Lumière Brothers filmed him and Jean Cocteau and Colette wrote about him. The first black performer to become a major popular hit in France and a key figure in its awakening as a multicultural nation, he died in poverty in 1917 and his memory faded. This box-office hit has helped restore his legacy." The New York Times Language: French with English subtitles

Summer, 1946. The Cousteau family live in their beautiful house by the Mediterranean Sea. By day they go diving, by night they watch the stars. It's paradise on earth. But Jacques is never content. He lives and breathes adventure and believes absolutely in the virtues of progress. With his invention, the aqualung, his recently acquired vessel the Calypso, and a crew of free-spirited adventurers, he is ready to cross the world's oceans. Ten years later, back from boarding school, Jacques's son Philippe finds his father greatly altered – an international celebrity with megalomaniac dreams of grafting gills to humans and creating underwater cities. Despite their mutual love and admiration, violent conflict between these two passionate men is inevitable. This high-profile biopic of the legendary French underwater explorer is based on books about Cousteau as well as testimony gathered by Jérôme Salle and his team. "Nothing was spared in Salle's attempt to bring Cousteau's life to the screen, with complex underwater work and plentiful location shooting; production designer Laurence Ott has enjoyed himself and the results are often more than handsome." Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily Language: French with English subtitles
