Wondering why times are missing?

Paris 36

This sugarcoated slice of French history takes us back to the titular year to introduce us to the lives of the performers and stagehands at a low-rent music hall in Paris. What ever will our artsy types do when an unscrupulous Fascist landlord forces the property to close? Paris 36 aims for breezy song-and dance territory à la Moulin Rouge!, but it's way too schmaltzy and gets bogged down in complicated pre-war politics. 120 minutes PG-13.
