About the Event
Waiting for Bojangles is a passionate love story (amour fou) adapted from Olivier Bourdeaut’s international bestselling novel of the same title.
Seen through the eyes of their son, Gary, Camille played by Virginie Efira, and Georges, played by, who better than Romain Duris, dance to their favourite song Mr Bojangles in their magnificent Parisian flat. Their love is magical, dazzling, a perpetual party.
At home, there is only room for pleasure, imagination and friends. Camille sets the tone, an unpredictable and extravagant will-o’-the-wisp, constantly drawing her family into a whirlwind of poetry, music and fantasy.
One day however, she goes too far, obliging Georges and Gary to go to extreme lengths to avoid the inevitable, at all costs.
Waiting For Bojangles is an enchanting film with elegant cinematography and great way to finish the Festival . Audiences should come prepared with tissues in hand. Efira and Duris craft exceptional performances, so intimate their love story feels like your own, making their inevitable heartbreak all the more tragic.
