The Big Hit (Un Triomphe)

21st September @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

€5 – €8
When struggling actor Etienne accepts a job directing theatre workshops in a prison, he is surprised to discover a wealth of acting talent among the resistant inmates. Seeing an opportunity for success, Etienne convinces the warden to allow the group to present Waiting for Godot outside of the prison, with a tour of performances for the general public.

Based on true events, which happened in Sweden in 1985, writer-director Courcol has relocated the action to France, and employed a superb cast, to deliver a crowd-pleasing film that earned the Best European Comedy prize at the 2020 European Film Awards.
