Pigalle, la nuit

TV-Series | FR 2009 | 52' | Subtitled English

From artists’ quarter to entertainment district to tourist trap – the neighborhood around Place Pigalle in Paris lives off its legendary past and notoriously shady reputation. The French TV series PIGALLE, LA NUIT takes a look behind the scenes. On a search for his sister Emma, young businessman Thomas is drawn into the world of strippers, bouncers, and kingpins. As it turns out, Emma is the star of the strip show in a nightclub owned by underworld boss Nadir, who is less than thrilled about her big brother’s investigations. However, Nadir has a much bigger problem: across the street, right in his face, an unknown competitor has opened a new upscale club. A provocation. Will it lead to a feud in the demimonde of the entertainment district? A gripping mix of underworld tale, crime story, and family drama – one of the best series to come out of France in a long time. Free Jazz legend Archie Shepp stars in a supporting role.
